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.

ANS members approve amendment adding YMG rep to board of directors
The American Nuclear Society will include a representative from the Young Members Group on its Board of Directors after ANS members voted this week overwhelmingly in favor of amending Article B6 of the ANS bylaws. The change was mandated by Objective Outcome 5 of the ANS Change Plan 2020.
To keep the number of directors at 16, the approved amendment decreased the number of non–U.S. resident directors from three to two.

The scope of these activities includes both agency-wide efforts intended to address cross-cutting aspects of culture, innovation, technology, and staff development, as well as elements driven at the office-level focused on reactor licensing, oversight, and rulemaking. Though they vary in objective, the common themes that motivate the transformation activities are: (1) gaining efficiencies in our processes such that more time can be devoted to matters of greatest importance to the agency’s mission, (2) enhancing agility to manage evolving workloads and responding adeptly to emerging technology trends in the nuclear energy sector, (3) developing a workforce that has the appropriate skills and tools to meet the mission needs, and (4) using new approaches to data analytics to inform our decision-making. Staff will provide an overview of the transformation, an update of the most recent activities, and identify ways in which the agency will engage with licensees and other stakeholders throughout the transformation process.
