ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy
The mission of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy Division (NNPD) is to promote the peaceful use of nuclear technology while simultaneously preventing the diversion and misuse of nuclear material and technology through appropriate safeguards and security, and promotion of nuclear nonproliferation policies. To achieve this mission, the objectives of the NNPD are to: Promote policy that discourages the proliferation of nuclear technology and material to inappropriate entities. Provide information to ANS members, the technical community at large, opinion leaders, and decision makers to improve their understanding of nuclear nonproliferation issues. Become a recognized technical resource on nuclear nonproliferation, safeguards, and security issues. Serve as the integration and coordination body for nuclear nonproliferation activities for the ANS. Work cooperatively with other ANS divisions to achieve these objective nonproliferation policies.

Idaho site marks 30 years of cleanup
When the Department of Energy, the state of Idaho, and the Environmental Protection Agency signed a federal facility agreement and consent order in December 1991, the agencies outlined a plan to investigate and clean up, if necessary, more than 500 individual waste areas within the 890-square-mile Idaho National Laboratory (INL) Site, which was established in 1949 to design, build, and test nuclear reactors.

14th International Conference on Radiation Shielding and 21st Topical Meeting of the Radiation Protection and Shielding Division
Seattle, WA|Seattle Marriott Waterfront
Our meeting vision is to ensure attendees leave with renewed interest in their field of expertise by exposing them to new tools that make them more effective, showing them the value of membership in the RPSD community, and providing an enjoyable destination for the meeting. We will emphasize the technical intersection between tool developers and user applications, taking advantage of the synergy between the two diverse groups of attendees. Through the planned technical sessions, workshops, plenary talks, and social events, we hope to provide an environment that is ideal for the two communities to engage in productive technical discussions, establish collaborations, and build community.
Submit a Summary
We are proud to follow in the long tradition of joint RPSD-ICRS meetings and hope to achieve the success of the last meeting in Paris (2016). Our meeting vision is to ensure attendees leave with renewed interest in their field of expertise by exposing them to new tools that make them more effective, showing them the value of membership in the RPSD and ICRS communities, and providing an enjoyable destination for the meeting. We hope to provide an environment for tool developers, code users, theoreticians, and experimentalists to engage in productive discussions, establish collaborations, and build community in the foreground of scientific advancements and challenges in radiation protection and shielding.
