The Institute of Nuclear Materials Management is dedicated to the safe, secure and effective stewardship of nuclear materials and related technologies through the advancement of scientific knowledge, technical skills, policy dialogue, professional capabilities, and best practices.
The Institute of Nuclear Materials Management will be the leading international professional society for the stewardship of nuclear materials and related technologies to enhance global security.
What We Do
Nuclear materials management involves the production, use, storage, transport, handling, protection, accounting and other essential aspects involved with the essential elements of the civilian nuclear fuel cycle, most notably, uranium and plutonium.
INMM is dedicated to the professional quality, ethics, and advancement of its membership. The INMM was formed in 1958, and has since grown to a membership of over 1000. It hosts an Annual Meeting in July, which draws a wide attendance for key plenary talks, many sessions of contributed technical presentations, commercial exhibitors, and numerous opportunities for related side meetings. The Institute also sponsors a variety of topical meetings throughout the year. The INMM publishes the Journal of Nuclear Materials Management quarterly, featuring refereed, scholarly articles from its membership.
The INMM comprises six technical divisions, each covering a major dimension of the overall nuclear materials management domain:
- Facility Operations
- International Safeguards
- Materials Control and Accountability
- Nonproliferation and Arms Control
- Nuclear Security and Physical Protection
- Packaging, Transportation and Disposition Division
The INMM also has a growing network of professional and student chapters that afford its membership many further opportunities to stay engaged and connected. The INMM is governed by an all-volunteer Executive Committee, supported by several standing committees, and operated by a professional headquarters staff.
