Published: DOE-STD-1212-2019 Change Notice 1, Explosives Safety

Provides the basic technical requirements for an explosives safety program necessary to ensure safe operations involving explosives, explosives assemblies, pyrotechnics and propellants, and assemblies containing these materials. Establishes safety controls and standards not addressed in other existing DOE or non-DOE regulations and is intended to close the safety gap created by DOE's unique activities to govern the DOE explosives safety process and ensure explosives safety is commensurate with the risk. This standard is based on the Cardinal Principle of Explosives Safety, which is to limit exposure to a minimum number of personnel, for a minimum amount of time, to a minimum amount of explosives, consistent with safe and efficient operations.
