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.
The division's objectives are to promote the advancement of knowledge and understanding of the fundamental physical phenomena characterizing nuclear reactors and other nuclear systems. The division encourages research and disseminates information through meetings and publications. Areas of technical interest include nuclear data, particle interactions and transport, reactor and nuclear systems analysis, methods, design, validation and operating experience and standards. The Wigner Award heads the awards program.

This panel session will highlight current and emergent issues in consensus standards, with a focus on industry needs for standards actions. The topics will also include: moving from risk informed to performance based standards; harmonization among ANS standards and between ANS standards and standards from other SDOs; digital twins as an adjunct to licensing by test; potential for standards action for System-Theoretic Process Analysis; perspectives by several ANS Consensus Committees; and may include perspectives from ASME, EPRI, IEEE, INPO, NEI, ISO and regulators. The Risk-Informed, Performance-Based Principles and Policy Committee (RP3C) has participated in organizing this panel.
