The Summit will bring leading regulators together with experienced nuclear export control compliance managers to provide the knowledge you need to implement an effective compliance control system without overly restraining legitimate trade.
Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) November 18, 2013
Infocast, the industry-leading conference and event producer, is organizing the Nuclear Export Controls Summit on January 14 - 16, 2014 at the Renaissance Dupont Circle Hotel in Washington, D.C. Regulators and experienced nuclear industry experts will gather to take part in the three-day, information-packed event.
Even as a surge in international nuclear construction raises the importance of accessing export markets to US-based equipment providers and service suppliers in the nuclear supply chain, increased scrutiny is being placed on nuclear exports. After nearly two years of study, the US Department of Energy (DOE) has issued another notice of proposed revisions to its nuclear technology export control regulations in 10 CFR Part 810, the first major change since 1986. Furthermore, Department of Commerce export control reforms, effective October 15, 2013, will also change the jurisdiction for some items to gain approval for export. What are the most important changes? What changes is DOE proposing? What is not fully explained in the rulemaking proposal? How might these changes affect you? Only those equipment manufacturers, service suppliers, fuel suppliers, and nuclear operating utilities with the most up-to-date information will be able to stay compliant—and competitive—in an increasingly international nuclear industry.
Representatives from the Bureau of Industry and Security, Department of Energy, Department of the State, Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the National Nuclear Security Administration will be present, along with industry experts from Areva NP Inc., Arizona Public Service, Babcock & Wilcox, Electric Power Research Institute, Inc. (EPRI), Exelon Corporation, and Westinghouse Electric among many others. The Summit will bring leading regulators together with experienced nuclear export control compliance managers to provide the knowledge you need to implement an effective compliance control system without overly restraining legitimate trade. They will provide an overview of the complex web of Department of Energy, Department of State, Department of Commerce/BIS and NRC regulations, controls and compliance protocols over the export of nuclear technology and services.
The event also will feature a primer on Tuesday, January 14, Nuclear Export Control Regulation and Compliance, which will focus on providing participants with a basic understanding of nuclear export control regulations and how to implement a compliance program.
