Additive manufacturing (AM) is set to revolutionise production chains and reduce costs across several industrial sectors including nuclear, oil & gas, power, petrochemical and medical devices. However there is a pressing need to develop regulatory, inspection and assurance regimes to support this progress.

We invite you to join other professionals from industry, academia and regulatory bodies such as HSE to identify and discuss the key issues around managing risks in AM. Areas for discussion will focus on:

  • challenges in materials integrity
  • assessment and assurance methodologies
  • the adequacy of inspection methods
  • design code development and use

We aim to identify cross-sectoral issues and plan technical and guidance strategies to define a path by which the AM revolution can be safely navigated through better research and regulation.

Programme details and booking information will be published soon – please email to register your interest in this event.

Please pass this information on to colleagues and researchers who might be interested in attending.
