Topics to be covered include:

Current and future use of IEEE and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) consensus standards in the regulation of digital instrumentation and control systems in the nuclear power industry

Catawba Nuclear Station's use of polyethylene piping

Risk-informed standards and the joint American Nuclear Society Risk-Informed Standards Committee (ANS RISC) / ASME Committee on Nuclear Risk Management (CNRM) committee

Update on Department Of Energy / Nuclear Regulatory Commission / NIST Interagency Agreement

Task group reports on concrete, task group proposals on polymeric piping for nuclear plants and structural design and performance, and a standards database will also be discussed.

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