PJS-5506-2007, Proposed Revision to DOE-STD-5506-2007, Preparation of Safety Basis Documents for Transuranic (TRU) Waste Facilities

The revision to the Standard will incorporate best practices and lessons learned from implementation and use of this Standard since it was first issued in 2007, and reflect revisions to related requirements for facility safety and safety basis design. This update will preserve and build upon the fundamental philosophy and approach of the current Standard. The most significant changes currently identified for the DOE-STD-5506 revision are the following: • Reflect best practices and lessons learned since the Standard was originally issued in 2007; • Reflect pertinent changes to other key DOE documents, such as DOE Order 420.lC, DOESTD-3009-2014, DOE-STD-1228-2019, and DOE-HDBK-1224-2018, which have been revisedsince this Standard was issued; • Reflect lessons learned from the February 2014 event at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) and April 2018 event at the Waste Management Facility at Idaho. • Address technical issues raised in DNFSB-TECH 43, Deficiencies in DOE Standard 5506-2007, issued in March 2018; and • Reflect experiences from relevant Operating Experience Reports since 2007.
