The Chief of Nuclear Safety (CNS) co-sponsored, with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), the next Natural Phenomena Hazards Meeting October 23-24, 2018 at the NRC Headquarters in Rockville, MD. CNS sponsored such meetings in 2011, 2014 and 2016. The goal of these meetings is to improve performance in NPH analysis and design for DOE and other critical facilities. The meetings have received much positive feedback, and CNS now aims to hold them biennially. The discussions bring together national experts from DOE academia, the private sector, national laboratories, the Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board and the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Questions about the NPH meeting can be directed to Dr. Steve McDuffie of the CNS staff at 509-373-6766, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
