This Standard provides useful information for establishing processes and procedures for the receipt, storage, assay, handling, packaging, and shipping of tritium and tritiated wastes. It includes discussions and advice on compliance‐based issues and adds insight to those areas in which DOE guidance is unclear. It is intended to be a “living document” that is revised periodically.
Processing Exemptions to Nuclear Safety Rules and Approval of Alternative Methods for Documented Safety Analyses Reaffirmation 2015
DOE may grant temporary or permanent exemptions from its nuclear safety requirements in rules provided that the provisions of 10 C.F.R. Part 820, Subpart E, ""Exemption Relief,"" are met. The provisions of 10 C.F.R. Part 820 state that the Secretarial Officer (defined in 10 C.F.R. Part 820) shall utilize any procedures deemed necessary and appropriate to comply with the exemption responsibilities. This Standard establishes acceptable procedures that may be used to request and grant exemptions to DOE nuclear safety rules in accordance with 10 C.F.R. Part 820.
