» Japan will provide radiation data for food to Tiwan

Japan will provide documentation on radiation checks for food products exported to Taiwan from June, according to health authorities in Taipei.

While Japan has been providing such information to other countries since the start of the Fukushima crisis in March 2011, it has never supplied such documentation to Taiwan. Japan finally agreed to begin providing the documentation to Taiwan in June under a three-month trial program.

During the trial phase, Tokyo will provide Taipei with radiation checks for 11 categories of food products and Taiwan will continue to apply random checks on those products.

Taiwan began radiation tests on food products imported from Japan immediately after March 2011 disaster.

Taiwan still bans all food produced in the prefectures of Fukushima, Ibaraki, Tochigi, Gunma and Chiba, and conducts random radiation checks on eight categories of food produced elsewhere in Japan. This includes frozen and fresh food, fresh and frozen seafood, dairy products, baby food, mineral water and other products.
