ASME Provides Ongoing Support for Nuclear Standards and Technology Convergence
Apr 1, 2016
AFCEN, a French technical association that produces standards for the design, construction and in-service inspection of components for use in industrial or experimental nuclear facilities, held its general meetings on March 23-24 in Paris. The event included a workshop focused on the comparison of state-of –the-art welding practices in used in ASME’s and AFCEN’s nuclear codes, as well as updates on ASME’s activities relating to the environmental effects on fatigue.
Participation in this workshop and meetings is in support of ASME’s efforts on the Standards Development Organization Convergence Board, an initiative launched by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s Nuclear Energy Agency Multinational Design Evaluation Program to facilitate the global harmonization of technical code requirements.
