Review of the Savannah River Site Salt Waste Processing Facility Safety Basis and Design Development.
This report documents the results of an independent oversight review of the safety basis and design development for the Salt Waste Processing Facility (SWPF) at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Savannah River Site. The review was performed February 12-14, 2013 by DOE’s Office of Safety and Emergency Management Evaluations, which is within the DOE Office of Health, Safety and Security. The purpose of the review was to evaluate the safety basis, design, and the associated technical documents developed for selected systems of the SWPF, and to evaluate whether they complied with applicable requirements and standards. The review also included certain aspects of configuration management and component procurement specifications processes to ensure that changes to safety bases and design are adequately controlled and that safety systems meet safety basis requirements.
