Institute of Nuclear Power Operation (INPO)
The nuclear electric utility industry created the Institute of Nuclear Power Operations (INPO) in 1979. INPO's mission is to promote the highest levels of safety and reliability - to promote excellence - in the operation of nuclear electric generating plants. All US organisations that operate commercial nuclear power plants are members of INPO while nuclear operating organisations in other countries and nuclear steam supply systems, architect/engineering and construction firms are INPO participants.
The National Academy for Nuclear Training, which operates under the auspices of the INPO, embodies the US commercial nuclear utility industry's commitment to high quality training and professionalism. The academy integrates the training-related efforts of nuclear utilities, the Independent National Nuclear Accrediting Board and INPO.
INPO also represents US utilities in the World Association of Nuclear Operators (WANO). Formed in 1989, WANO unites every commercial nuclear power plant operator in the world with members from 32 countries currently operating some 435 reactors.
