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.

Explore what matters in nuclear science and technology
Nuclear science is the study of one of the smallest things we know—the atomic nucleus. But, even though it’s 100,000 times smaller than an atom, the tiny nucleus has a huge impact on our world.
Nuclear science brings us cancer treatments, power for space missions, smoke detectors, better food supplies, and one of the cleanest and greenest ways of generating electricity.
Come with us to explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
