    * Post-Fukushima inspections found issues at U.S. plants * Plants must certify compliance with rules by June 10 * Additional certifications required in July * Industry says "well on its way" to providing answers * INPO president: "We cannot resort to business as usual"
    (Adds industry quotes, details, background throughout) By Roberta Rampton WASHINGTON, May 11 (Reuters) - Inspections at U.S. nuclear
    plants following the disaster at Japan's Fukushima Daiichi
    facility have raised questions about their readiness to deal
    with extreme events, the head of the U.S. nuclear safety
    regulator said on Wednesday. Gregory Jaczko, chairman of the Nuclear Regulatory
    Commission, did not specify what issues were uncovered, but
    said nuclear plants will have until June 10 to confirm they are
    complying with rules put in place after the Sept. 11, 2001
    attacks on the United States.
