RevCom: Project Justification Statement for proposed revision to DOE-STD-1192-2018, Security Risk Management Technical Standards (OUO)

by Diane Johnson last modified Apr 28, 2020 08:16 PM

This Security Risk Management Technical Standard (SRMTS) was developed in coordination with the Vulnerability Assessment Technical Working Group (VATWG) and the recently established Security Risk Assessment Working Group (SRAWG) to provide accepted processes for conducting VAs and security risk assessments (SRAs) throughout the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The DOE O 470.3B, Design Basis Threat has been revised to include emerging threats. To ensure these threats are adequately assessed, and current processes updated based on lessons learned, DOE-STD-1192-2018 will be reviewed and revised appropriately.

New: DOE-STD-1090-2020, Hoisting and Rigging

by Patricia Greeson last modified Jul 22, 2020 03:39 PM

The standard invokes applicable OSHA, ASME, ANSI, and national consensus standards but also defines more stringent provisions necessary to accomplish the complex, diversified, critical, and oftentimes hazardous hoisting and rigging work found within the DOE complex.

New: DOE-HDBK-1081-2014 (Reaffirmed 2020), Primer on Spontaneous Heating and Pyrophoricity

by Patricia Greeson last modified Jul 24, 2020 07:52 PM

This standard is being reaffirmed because of a need to maintain basic information on spontaneous heating and pyrophoricity of certain materials, such as combustible metals, that are not uncommon hazards within the Department of Energy (DOE) complex. Additionally, recent publication of National Fire Protection Association Standard No. 855, Standard for the Installation of Stationary Energy Storage Systems (2020) affirms a basic need for fire protection engineers, designers and emergency responders to address the various materials covered by this primer.

New: DOE-STD-1236-2020, Canine Explosive Training Aid Management

by Diane Johnson last modified Jul 29, 2020 07:17 PM

Explosive training aids are used for training, certifying and performance testing of canines. The utility and effectiveness of the training aids can be significantly reduced if they become contaminated with other explosive types. Care in handling, transportation, and storage of explosive training aids will help maintain their overall quality and avoid cross-contamination. Additionally, recognizing when it is time to replace training aids will help ensure that canine teams are being trained and are performing at the highest level possible. This standard outlines accepted management practices for ensuring the quality of explosive training aids.

RevCom: Project Justification Statement for New DOE Technical Standard for Chemical Safety Management

by Diane Johnson last modified Oct 08, 2020 02:27 PM

The proposed project is to develop a new DOE technical standard with clear expectations and guidance for managing chemical safety at DOE sites and facilities. This standard will describe a consistent, streamlined approach to chemical safety that can be used by DOE sites and facilities for evaluating and controlling chemical hazards.

RevCom: Project Justification Statement (PJS) for Revision of DOE-HDBK-1224-2018, Hazard and Accident Analysis Handbook

by Diane Johnson last modified Oct 19, 2020 03:46 PM

The scope of the proposed project is to finalize publication and issuance of DOE-HDBK-1224-2018, Hazard and Accident Analysis Handbook (the Handbook), that was issued on July 26, 2018 for a 2-year “interim use” period. Comments received during this period will be gathered, analyzed, and incorporated. The revision effort will also identify specific technical areas of concern identified by DOE and DOE Contractor analysts and the Senior Review Committee (SRC) that may emerged during the 2- year interim use period.

New: DOE-HDBK-1163-2020, Integration of Hazard Analyses

by Patricia Greeson last modified Oct 22, 2020 09:14 PM

The handbook revision incorporates best practices and lessons learned from performing and integrating hazard analysis at various DOE facilities since initial issuance in 2003. This revised handbook is intended to support mission success by describing best practices in hazard analysis that apply to less-than-hazard-category 3 (Less than HC-3) nuclear facilities, chemical facilities, industrial facilities, and other facilities at DOE sites across the country.

RevCom: Project Justification Statement for Revising DOE-STD-1104-2016, Review and Approval of Nuclear Facility Safety Basis and Safety Design Basis Documents

by Diane Johnson last modified Nov 02, 2020 04:41 PM

The proposed project is to provide a limited change to DOE Standard (STD)-1104-2016, Review and Approval of Nuclear Facility Safety Basis and Safety Design Basis Documents. The focus of this limited change is to align the standard with the final rule change of 10 CFR 830, Nuclear Safety Requirements, published on October 19, 2020. 10 CFR Part 830 was revised to remove the requirement for DOE to review and approve the annual DSA update. STD-1104-2016 addresses the review of DSA Annual Updates in Section 7.1.2. To implement the Rule change, this Standard would need to be revised to remove and/or modify Section 7.1.2. The scope of the change will be limited so the change can be processed expeditiously to support new rule implementation.

RevCom: Project Justification Statement to Revise and Convert DOE Guide (G) 441.1-XX to DOE Handbook, Implementing Release and Clearance of Property Requirements for use with DOE O 458.1, Radiation Protection of the Public and the Environment

by Diane Johnson last modified Nov 02, 2020 04:32 PM

Draft DOE G 441.1-xx, was issued for use and comment in 2002 to assist in the implementation of Order DOE 5400.5 property clearance (now DOE Order (O)458.1). This action will update the guidance and convert it to a Handbook to continue providing information to assist Department of Energy (DOE) Program and Field Offices in understanding and implementing the Department’s release and clearance of property requirements. DOE O 458.1 establishes Departmental requirements for the release and clearance of property. The intent is to produce a Handbook that provides implementation guidance to support DOE’s diverse missions and ensure the continued protection of the public and the environment. Additionally, the Handbook will incorporate a consolidated list of approved pre-approved authorized limits supporting DOE O 458.1 clearance of property requirements.
