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.

Family Feud night hosted by DIA at the ANS Winter Meeting
At the ANS Winter Meeting in Phoenix, the Diversity and Inclusion in ANS (DIA) Committee hosted the second annual Nuclear Family Feud event as a way for ANS members and meeting attendees to have fun by gamifying the workshop, polling the community, and increasing engagement.
An ANS Working Group is the writing committee. These groups of about a dozen people each create the text of ANS Standards. They also make decisions about a standard's maintenance and respond to requests for clarification or interpretation. Many working groups take advantage of the two ANS meetings held each year (June and November) and meet at that time. Others conduct much of their work via telephone, e-mail, and fax.
Some working groups now use web pages to communicate. These pages provide a place to share current drafts with committee members and the public and to discuss the standard's status. The web pages may also provide committee rosters, including meeting minutes and announcements, and discuss the standard. Below you will find various links to working group web pages that are in use.
