ASTM Sponsors Nuclear Energy Workshop

April 15, 2011

ASTM International announced it will sponsor a workshop on Emerging Trends in Nuclear Energy–The Standards Component on June 15 in Anaheim, Calif. Representatives from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) have been invited to present their concepts and views on how nuclear energy is and will continue to be a solid resource for alternative energy, and how sound standards will impact its strength, reliability and perception to the public.

The goal of this workshop is to contribute to the creation of an ASTM roadmap of the civil nuclear energy section, as well as to learn more about the NRC’s perspective as to the future of the nuclear industry, the trends and opportunities that will arise, and the issues and priorities that need to be addressed. ASTM standards’ role in the nuclear industry will also be highlighted.
