April 2013

Review of Radiation Protection Program Implementation at the Advanced Mixed Waste Treatment Project of the Idaho Site

This report documents an independent review of activity-level radiation protection program (RPP) implementation at the Advanced Mixed Waste Treatment Project (AMWTP) of the Idaho Site, as conducted by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Enforcement and Oversight (Independent Oversight) within the Office of Health, Safety and Security (HSS). The review was performed by the HSS Office of Safety and Emergency Management Evaluations. The purpose of this Independent Oversight targeted review effort is to evaluate the flowdown of occupational radiation protection requirements, as expressed in facility-specific RPPs, to work planning, control, and execution processes. Independent Oversight accomplished this review by performing assessments that included activity-level observations.

This targeted review was performed at the Idaho Site from January 28 to 30, 2013. This report discusses the scope, background, methodology, results, conclusions, and opportunities for improvement (OFIs) resulting from this review, as well as items identified for further follow-up by HSS.
