Announcement of a Meeting to Explore Feasibility of Establishing a NIST/Industry Consortium on the Constituent Contribution to the Service Life of a Coating System
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) invites interested parties to attend a pre-consortium meeting to be held on May 16 and 17, 2006 at the NIST main campus in Gaithersburg, MD. The objective of this two-day meeting is to evaluate industry interest in the fourth phase of the Coatings Service Life Prediction Consortium. The goals of this consortium include the development of measurement methods and mathematical models for ascertaining the service life response of filled coatings containing pigments having a range of photoreactivities exposed in both the laboratory and the field. For this particular phase of research, the filler of interest will be titanium dioxide nanoparticles and pigments dispersed in both a thermoplastic and a thermoset matrix. NIST staff members along with at least one technical representative from each participating member company will conduct consortium research and development. Membership in the Consortium is open to the coatings community, particularly coating manufacturers, raw material suppliers, and equipment manufacturers. The term of the consortium is intended to be four years.

National Conference on Weights and Measures: Interim Meeting
The Interim Meeting of the 91st National Conference on Weights and Measures (NCWM) will be held January 22 through 25, 2006, at the Omni Jacksonville Hotel in Jacksonville, Florida. This meeting is open to the public. Detailed meeting agendas and information on registration requirements, fees and hotel information can be found at https:// www.ncwm.net. The NCWM is an organization of weights and measures officials of the states, counties, and cities of the United States, Federal Agencies, and private sector representatives. This meeting brings together government officials and representatives of business, industry, trade associations, and consumer organizations to consider subjects related to the field of weights and measures technology, administration and enforcement. Pursuant to (15 U.S.C. 272(b)(6)), the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) supports the NCWM as one of several means it uses to solicit comments and recommendations on revising or updating a variety of publications related to legal metrology and to promote uniformity among the States in laws, regulations, methods, and testing equipment that comprises regulatory control of commercial weighing and measuring devices and practices. Publication of this Notice by the NIST on the NCWM's behalf is being undertaken as a public service; NIST does not necessarily endorse, approve, or recommend any of the proposals contained in the notice.
National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program Workshop for Laboratories Interested in Testing Radiation Detection Instruments for Homeland Security Applications
The National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) will hold a public workshop on Thursday, January 26, 2006, at the Doubletree Paradise Valley Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona. The purpose of the workshop is to exchange information among NVLAP, laboratories interested in testing radiation detection instruments for Department of Homeland Security applications, and other interested parties. The results of the workshop will be used in the development of the Radiation Detection Instruments Laboratory Accreditation Program. There is no charge for the workshop.
Establishment of a Laboratory Accreditation Program for Radiation Detection Instruments Under National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) publishes this notice to announce that it is establishing an accreditation program for laboratories that perform testing of radiation detection instruments. This program will provide for the accreditation of laboratories that test radiation detection instruments using standards developed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Homeland Security Instrumentation (HSI) and Radiation Protection Instrumentation (RPI) groups.
