KEPCO: 197 employees obtained national licenses illegally, also engaged in nuclear power plant construction work

December 20, 2022
On December 20, KEPCO announced that 197 employees of KEPCO and its group companies (17 of whom had retired) had taken the technical certification examination for construction management engineers, a national certification that is required for process management in construction work, without the required period of work experience, and had fraudulently obtained the certification. An investigation report by outside lawyers found no evidence of systematic involvement in the fraud.

 The Osaka District Court found no problems with the quality of construction work performed by the company’s employees, including 15 cases involving the three nuclear power plants in its jurisdiction, in which the improperly qualified employees were engaged as chief engineers.
