The article discusses about goals of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers's (ASME) Nuclear Codes and Standards Department pertaining to the expanded application of ASME Codes and Standards. Current initiatives include promoting Codes and Standards in industry publications, simplifying access to ASME utilizing the Internet, participating in workshops and offering courses around the world. There is also an increased focus on international participation on Codes and Standards committees. The use of project teams and the exchange of information via the Internet will make it more realistic to meld ideas across the globe and will reduce standards development time.
