RevCom: Notice of Intent to Develop DOE-STDS-XXXX-YR, Preparation of a Documented Safety Analysis for Hazard Category 3 Nuclear Facilities

by Patricia Greeson — last modified Feb 23, 2018 11:49 AM

The proposed project is to develop a new DOE Standard (STD), Preparation of Documented Safety Analysis for Hazard Category 3 Nuclear Facilities. A Documented Safety Analysis (DSA) is required for each DOE Hazard Category 3 nuclear facility in accordance with 10 CFR 830, Nuclear Safety Management, Subpart B, Safety Basis Requirements.The proposed new standard is intended to be available for inclusion in Table 2 of Appendix A as a new safe harbor methodology that defines an approach for Hazard Category 3 nuclear facilities to meeting the requirements of 10 CFR 830, Subpart B

RevCom: Notice of Intent to Revise DOE-STD-1112-2016, Department of Energy Laboratory Accreditation Program for Radiobioassy

by Diane Johnson — last modified Feb 21, 2018 03:00 PM

DOE-STD-1112-2016, Department of Energy Laboratory Accreditation Program for Radiobioassay be updated to include the requirements that are currently used to conduct on-site assessments of accredited programs and to reflect current practices and standards. The update aims to increase the quality of DOELAP accreditation, but should only have a minor impact on current DOELAP programs through the streamlining of DOELAP requirements. It will have a major positive impact on new DOELAP programs because it will provide clear direction on DOELAP requirements.
