NRC Oversight Workshop to Focus on Vendor Inspection Activities

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is hosting its sixth Workshop on Vendor Oversight on June 14 in Cleveland.

The workshop, which is open to the public, will run from 8 a.m.-5:30 p.m., at the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel, 24 Public Square. Workshop presenters will include representatives from the NRC, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the Electric Power Research Institute, the Edison Welding Institute, Luminant Power, Paragon Energy Solutions and Westinghouse.

The NRC encourages those interested in attending the workshop to pre-register by June 1 before 1 p.m. Individuals needing reasonable accommodations to participate in the workshop should contact Nicholas Savwoir by June 11, via e-mail at or via phone at (301) 415-0256.

The NRC staff expects the workshop will bring together members of the public, licensees, applicants, industry organizations, and vendors of safety-related parts, materials, and services. Workshop sessions will cover topics including counterfeit, fraudulent, or suspect items; supplier oversight challenges; commercial-grade dedication; reverse engineering; additive manufacturing (e.g., 3D printing); and safety culture. NRC staff will be available at the end of each workshop session for additional discussions.
