The 1st International Meeting on Fire Safety and Emergency Preparedness will provide a forum for nuclear professionals to network and communicate changes presently impacting the industry.  It is an opportune time as the new standard, CSA N393 Fire Protection for Facilities that Process, Handle or Store Nuclear Material is approved for use.  This standard may affect facility licenses as early as 2014.  It is expected that CSA N393 will be included in a broader range of facility licences and will replace NFPA 801 Standard for Fire Protection for Facilities Handling Radioactive Materials in existing licences.

The conference is intended to attract participants from various sectors of the nuclear industry relating to power reactors, research reactors, nuclear laboratories, mines, processing, storage and handling facilities, decommissioned nuclear facilities, nuclear medicine and transportation of nuclear materials.
