NRC's Use of Consensus Standards, led by Michael Case of the Office of Regulatory Research, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission

Update of NRC Regulatory Guide 1.69, "Concrete Radiation Shields and Generic Shield Testing for Nuclear Power Plants," a Case Study, led by Chiara Ferraris of the NIST Materials and Construction Research Division

EPRI Advanced Nuclear Technology (ANT) Program, "Achieving New Nuclear Virtual Power Plant Configuration Management," led by Ken Barry of EPRI and Russell Adams of Dominion

ANSI Homeland Security Standards Panel, Lessons Learned, led by Gordon Gillerman of the NIST Standards Services Division

There will also be several hours dedicated to task group discussions.

All stakeholders are invited to participate, including standards developing organizations (SDOs), consortia and other forums, industry, government, and consumers.
