ITER, the world’s largest international scientific collaboration, is beginning the assembly of the fusion reactor tokamak that will include 12 essential hardware systems provided by US ITER, which is managed by Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The first major machine element to be installed is the 1,250-ton base of the cryostat, which was placed into the tokamak assembly pit on May 26. ITER is located in southeastern France.
Nuclear Standards News (NSN) is published six times a year and is dedicated solely to the news of nuclear standards and nuclear regulatory issues. The newsletter covers key events and issues in the nuclear standards field, standards actions, updates on publications, and a calendar of nuclear standards related events. The importance of standards on the international level continues to grow for the nuclear industry, and NSN endeavors to collect this information for you also. Nuclear Standards News provides an excellent way to stay on top of revisions, public review periods, clarification on ANS standards, and additions to industry standards.
NSN is available to all ANS members as a free member benefit. NSN is also a part of our ICONS subscriptions program but can be purchased as an individual subscription, as well.
