NMMSS 2015 Annual Users Training Meeting

The Nuclear Materials Management and Safeguards System (NMMSS) 2015 Annual Users Training Meeting will be held May 11–14, 2015, in Las Vegas, Nevada.  The NMMSS is the U.S. Government's official information system containing current and historical accounting data and other related nuclear material information collected from both government and commercial nuclear facilities. The information serves a critical role in aiding risk-informed decision making in areas related to regulatory functions, international programs, materials management, program management, and financial management.

The NMMSS 2015 four-day event provides a unique training and information sharing opportunity for Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) licensees, the Department of Energy (DOE)/National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Federal and contractor organizations, and other domestic and international entities with responsibility for tracking and reporting nuclear materials.

The planned NMMSS 2015 agenda focuses on:

  • Basic and specialized training to meet regulatory requirements associated with nuclear material reporting,
  • Regulatory updates relevant to nuclear material reporting,
  • Programmatic and regulatory issues of importance to the NRC licensees and DOE/NNSA contractors,
  • Specialized breakout sessions,
  • One-on-one consultations with, and technical support by, NMMSS staff, including a hands-on software orientation,
  • Industry roundtable discussion to share ideas and identify opportunities for improvement, and
  • Topical presentations on emerging domestic and international developments.

An important aspect of the NMMSS 2015 Annual Users Training Meeting is that the participants will receive a certificate for successfully completing the training sessions.  There is no registration fee to participate.

For more information and to register for this important event, including a draft agenda, please visit  A limited block of rooms has been booked at the government per diem rate on a first come first serve basis.  Early registration and room reservation is highly recommended.  Meanwhile, please contact Pete Dessaules (DOE/NNSA) or Brian Horn (NRC) with any questions or topics of significance to your organization that you would like addressed at the NMMSS 2015 Annual Users Training Meeting.
