Published: DOE-STD-1196-2022, Derived Concentration Technical Standard

This Standard (hereafter referred to as the “Standard”) contains DOE-approved derived concentration values (also referred to as DCS values) and effective dose coefficients that may be used in estimating doses, supporting pathway modeling, and comparing measurements to criteria provided in DOE Order (O) 458.1, Radiation Protection of the Public and the Environment, Chg 4, September 15, 2020. DOE O 458.1 invokes the Standard to provide DCS values for liquid effluents in comparison to established criteria for determining if Best Available Technology (BAT) evaluation processes is required if the DCS values are exceeded. The BAT process is completed to determine what treatment options are appropriate to comply with DOE O 458.1 requirements. Supersedes DOE-STD-1196-2021, dated 7-7-2021
