Nuclear Energy Standards Coordination Collaborative to Convene on April 2

New York, Mar 14, 2014

The Nuclear Energy Standards Coordination Collaborative (NESCC), a joint initiative of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the U.S. Department of Commerce (DoC)’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), will hold its next meeting from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 2, 2014, at ANSI Headquarters (1899 L Street, NW, 11th floor) in Washington, DC.

NESCC meetings focus on identifying and responding to the current needs of the nuclear industry, and the standards that can facilitate its growth and development. During the April 2 meeting, participants will hear follow-up briefings from NESCC task groups that recently issued reports, including its Welding Task Group and Electrical Cable Task Group, and take part in discussions related to nuclear structures, systems and components (SSC) classification, among other topics.

The April 2 meeting is open to all interested U.S. and international stakeholders, including government legislative and regulatory bodies, industry, standards developing organizations, and certification organizations. Attendance at the meeting is free of charge, but advance registration is required for both in-person and teleconference participants due to space constraints. All participants must register online by Tuesday, March 25, 2014.
