The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

The UK follows Japan in determining extent of nuclear “Transparency” by extending secrecy and protecting corruption!

As the Japanese Secrets Act implementation looms on 10th December 2014, I thought it appropriate to remind our UK viewers that the new UK Secrets Act has already been Implemented from April 2nd 2014.. And as the nuclear Information will be retroactively applied, you can see, as why I had to leave the UK.
Will the Japanese who disseminates health and nuclear information have to do the same? Will the new Japanese Secrets Act apply retroactively too?

Documents created prior to this date will continue to carry their existing markings until such time as they are amended in the normal course of work when the new markings will be applied at the same time.

Sellafield Ltd’s security regulator, ONR (Office for Nuclear Regulation), have instructed Sellafield Ltd and the wider civil nuclear industry to adopt the new GSC protective marking scheme known as Government Security Classifications (GSC).

Government Security Classifications

The new three tier system has three classifications: OFFICIAL, SECRET and TOP-SECRET.

Additionally ONR have mandated the use of an additional classification: OFFICIAL-SENSITIVE for Sensitive Nuclear Information which is classified below SECRET.
