New: DOE-STD-1228-2019, Preparation of Documented Safety Analysis for Hazard Category 3 DOE Nuclear Facilities

This Department of Energy (DOE) Standard (STD), DOE-STD-1228-2019, describes an acceptable methodology for preparing hazard category (HC) 3 nuclear facility Documented Safety Analyses (DSAs). This Standard is a DOE-approved methodology for meeting the requirements in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 830, Nuclear Safety Management, Subpart B, Safety Basis Requirements. DOE deems this Standard to be an acceptable “successor document” to the methods in Chapters 2, 3, 4, and 5 of DOE-STD–3009, Preparation Guide for U.S. Department of Energy Nonreactor Nuclear Facility Safety Analysis Reports, Change Notice No. 1, January 2000, as referenced in Table 2 of Appendix A to Subpart B, for the purpose of preparing DSAs for HC-3 DOE nonreactor nuclear facilities. As such, this Standard may be used as an acceptable safe harbor methodology as set forth in Appendix A to 10 CFR 830 Subpart B.
