Large-Scale Earthquake Countermeasure Act
The Act put into place an integrated set of measures and created several bodies at national, prefecture and local levels. These bodies dealt with preparation and response to earthquakes, including the establishment of a National Headquarters for Earthquake Disaster Prevention. It also includes a mechanism under which the Director General of the Meteorological Agency alerts the Prime Minister of a predicted impending earthquake, so that warnings can be issued.
