Independent Oversight Follow-up Review, Idaho Site – January 2014

January 2014

Follow-up Review of Activity-Level Implementation of Radiation Controls and Radiological Work Planning at the Materials and Fuels Complex of the Idaho Site

This report documents the results of an independent oversight review of radiation protection program (RPP) implementation at the Idaho Site 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 September 9-20, 2013, by the HSS Office of Safety and Emergency Management Evaluations to follow-up on the ongoing program of targeted assessments of RPP implementation across the DOE complex at sites that have hazard category 1, 2, and 3 nuclear facilities.  The purpose of the Independent Oversight targeted review effort was to evaluate the flow down of occupational radiation protection requirements, as expressed in facility RPPs, to work planning, control, and execution processes.  The purpose of this follow-up review was to revisit observations made during the September 2012 Independent Oversight targeted review at the Idaho Site, which specifically pertained to RPP implementation at the Materials and Fuel Complex.
