Current fire protection requirements of the Department reside in: DOE O 420.1C, "Facility Safety", 10 CFR Part 851, Worker Safety and Health Program; DOE 440.1B Chg 1, "Worker Protection Program for DOE (Including the National Nuclear Security Administration) Federal Employees". Specific requirements which are applicable to DOE facilities and programs are contained in the Code of Federal Regulations, NFPA Codes and Standards, and the International Building Code.
Statutory requirements related to fire safety that are applicable to DOE programs and facilities are principally contained in Appendix A, section 2 of 10 CFR Part 851, Worker Safety and Health Program. Construction-related fire safety requirements are contained in Subpart F, Fire Protection and Prevention," of 19 CFR 1926. Additionally, other statutory requirements may be applicable depending on the nature of the program activity or facility. For example, some of DOE's underground construction projects have come under the "Mine Safety" criteria delineated in 30 CFR 57.
To supplement these requirements and to facilitate the development and implementation of comprehensive fire protection programs across the Department, DOE has developed a series of fire safety guidance documents. These include DOE-STD-1066-2012, "Fire Protection" as well as other guidance documents and instructions contained on this web site.
