Welcome to the Foreign Material Exclusion Industry Working Group (FME IWG).
Our Vision: Eliminate foreign material intrusion events in the nuclear industry in support of the industry goal of zero fuel failures by aligning industry practices and programs.
Our Mission: Develop and communicate standards for best practices that enable the nuclear industry to achieve and sustain excellence in Foreign Material Exclusion (FME).
Membership in the FME IWG is recommended to be the FME Coordinator or specialist from each utility. Individuals from other disciplines or organizations are welcome to attend meetings as guests, however, recognizing that the FME Coordinator/station representative maintains responsibility as the member of the Working Group.
The FME IWG is monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation to ensure the health and safety of our meeting participants, as well as our staff. We will also be monitoring the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) as the situation progresses.
As of this date, the event is currently scheduled to take place. If there are any changes to these plans, we will provide updates on this website. Please check back periodically.
