With the recent vote by the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission to give license approval for the nation's first nuclear power plant in 30 years, the US nuclear industry took a major step toward returning to expansion after a long period of stability and safe operations. However, in the wake of the March 2011 incident at Japan's Fukushima plant, safety and quality assurance continues to be a paramount issue in the nuclear supply chain and facility operations.
Industry standards such as ASME NQA-1 and ANS-3.2 are continually being modified to improve support for next generation nuclear power plant operations. The existing generation of US nuclear power plants has one standard for the design and construction of a nuclear facility and a separate standard for the operations of that facility. It became evident that this model would not apply to newer nuclear facilities. Learn how standards developing organizations are using lessons learned over the last 30 years to account for existing and next generation nuclear power plants and how standards management within nuclear facilities is imperative to nuclear operations.
Join the American Nuclear Society, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and IHS as they give you an exclusive opportunity to view the current state of managerial, administrative and quality assurance in the industry, and the critical role of standards in ensuring quality throughout nuclear operations.
Don't miss this opportunity to understand the history of nuclear standards for managerial, administrative and quality assurance and the changes needed to support the next generation of nuclear power plant operations. Register now for this complimentary webcast.
