DOE-STD-3013-2018, Stabilization, Packaging and Storage of Plutonium-Bearing Materials

This Standard provides criteria for stabilization of plutonium-bearing materials at DOE facilities to safe and stable forms and packaging for storage with minimal surveillance for up to 50 years. This Standard applies to plutonium-bearing metals and oxides containing at least 30 wt% plutonium plus uranium. For enriched uranium metal, the plutonium content must be sufficiently high that the material is not acceptable at the Oak Ridge Y-12 Plant (Y/LB-15). As a practical limit for oxide materials containing significant quantities of uranium, the plutonium content must be greater than the applicable Safeguards Termination Limit. There is no lower limit for uranium. This Standard does not apply to materials destined for disposal in accordance with waste acceptance criteria for Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) or other approved waste disposal sites, such as plutonium residues or transuranic (TRU) waste; Irradiated Fuels; sealed sources; material packaged per DOE M 441.1-1; materials containing greater than 0.5 wt% uranium-233; or plutonium solutions. Supersedes DOE-STD-3013-2012.
