IHS is your source for ANS standards and publications.

The American Nuclear Society is a not-for-profit, international, scientific and educational organization. It was established by a group of individuals who recognized the need to unify the professional activities within the diverse fields of nuclear science and technology. December 11, 1954, marks the Society's historic beginning at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C. ANS has since developed a multifarious membership composed of approximately 11,000 engineers, scientists, administrators, and educators representing 1,600 plus corporations, educational institutions, and government agencies. It is governed by four officers and a board of directors elected by the membership.

Purpose: The core purpose of ANS is to promote the awareness and understanding of the application of nuclear science and technology.

Vision: ANS will be the recognized credible advocate for advancing and promoting nuclear science and technology.

ANS standards cover such topics as design criteria for nuclear power stations, criticality control of fuel mixtures, radioactive dosage criteria, concrete radiation shields, accident alarm systems for nuclear plants, safety guide for the performance of critical experiments, determining design basis flooding at power reactor sites, evaluation of surface water supplies for nuclear power sites, and selection qualification and training of personnel for nuclear power plants.
