The objective of the handbooks and reports on current issues is to provide guidance for those needing to get an introduction to and an initial understanding of the topics covered or to update and refresh the memory of those with materials/plant chemistry background. This group includes individuals ranging from young engineers, researchers, specialists to upper management. The handbooks and reports are written and explained in such a way that those not familiar with the topic can follow the report, and find and grasp the appropriate information. This means that the reports can be used by the organisation in the training of the internal staff with or without additional assistance from the ANT International staff. The handbooks and reports are offered to nuclear utilities, fuel vendors, research laboratories and regulatory agencies.
