Nuclear Export Controls Summit - Press Release

Infocast press release below.


Infocast Presents Nuclear Export Controls 2013, Regulators and Experienced Compliance Managers to Gather in D.C.


The Three-day Event Focuses on Staying Compliant – and Competitive – in an Increasingly International Nuclear Industry


Woodland Hills, CA – January 14, 2013 – Infocast, the industry-leading conference and event producer, is organizing the Nuclear Export Controls Summit on January 14 - 16, 2013 at the Renaissance Dupont Circle Hotel in Washington, D.C., where regulators and experienced nuclear export control compliance managers will gather to take part in the three-day, information-packed event.

Even as a surge in international nuclear construction increases the importance of accessing export markets to US-based equipment providers, service suppliers and consultants in the nuclear supply chain, increased scrutiny is being placed on nuclear exports.  In particular, the provisions of 10 CFR Part 810, which governs the US Department of Energy’s portion of the nuclear export control regime, are undergoing a major revision for the first time in some 25 years.

These far-reaching revisions are expected to make explicit for the first time controls of “deemed exports” potentially caused by the exposure of controlled technologies, techniques or knowledge to foreign national employees, contractors and visitors, and tighten controls on dual-use technologies, fuel enrichment and processing technologies.  Combined with the traditional difficulties in determining whether a particular technology or service is subject to Department of Energy, Department of Commerce/BIS or NRC jurisdiction, 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 increasing international nuclear industry.

Representatives from the Bureau of Industry and Security, Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the National Nuclear Security Administration will be present, along with industry experts from Enrichment Technologies, Inc., Exelon Corporation, GE Hitachi and Louisiana Energy Services, LLC among many others. The Summit aims to bring together respected thought leaders to share their knowledge on how to implement an effective compliance control system without overly restraining legitimate trade. 

The event also will feature a primer on Monday, January 14, Nuclear Export Control Regulation and Compliance, which will focus on providing participants with a basic understanding of nuclear export control regulations and the know-how to implement a compliance program.
