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.

The industry many times makes it difficult for suppliers to meet our requirements in the most cost effective way for both the utility and the supplier. When different utilities (and sometimes different plants within that utility) request items, they have widely varying descriptions of what they desire. This goes beyond the technical requirements being imposed and includes our terms of conditions, invoicing instructions, and procurement levels. It also will include effective interfacing between the appropriate levels in each organization, minimizing late night call-outs, things utilities can do to reduce cost, and things utilities do that hurt the process. This session will be a workshop where various suppliers can brainstorm with their utility counterparts on ways in which changes can be made that will assist both sides in reducing costs and decreasing number of non-conformances. Goal will be recommendations for the industry in a number of areas that will help alleviate these impediments.
