The American Concrete Institute (ACI) will offer a status report on its Nuclear Concrete Inspection and Training Program

The Nuclear Energy Institute's (NEI) Gordon Clefton and ASTM International's Joe Koury will highlight relevant work underway within their respective organizations

Representatives from NIST and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) will lead a discussion of task group reports on concrete, polymeric piping, and standards database initiatives

The meeting will take place on Monday, November 22, 2010, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. at NIST headquarters in Gaithersburg, MD.
