Take note! Registration closes today for the U.S. Department of Energy Conference for Newcomers: Understanding Exports of Advanced Reactor Technologies, scheduled for July 2627 at Argonne National Laboratory in Lemont, Ill.

Contact Mercedes Trent (mercedes.trent@nnsa.doe.gov) to sign up for the conference. Additional information will follow upon registration.

What it’s about: With the increased interest in advanced reactor technology development, many new companies and entities are learning about the U.S. framework for nuclear and nuclear-related exports for the first time. To raise awareness of governing export controls and help to ensure compliance, the DOE’s National Nuclear Security Administration will host the conference, which will provide an overview of the regulatory requirements in this area.

Presenters: Experts from the U.S. government will be on hand to lead training and panel discussions on the considerations and actions that can streamline exports of advanced nuclear technology, avoid common pitfalls, and take advantage of U.S. government expertise and resources.

Speakers will include experts from the DOE, the Department of Commerce, the Department of State, and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Notes: A post-conference tour of Argonne’s historical exhibit is scheduled.

There is no charge for attending the conference, but attendees are expected to incur costs related to travel, lodging, meals, and incidentals.
