Radiological Control Records
10 CFR 835 establishes requirements for retaining records. Upon cessation of activities that could result in the
occupational exposure of individuals, all required records related to individual exposure monitoring shall be
transferred to DOE [see 835.702(h)].
Once a record has been created, reviewed, and signed by appropriate supervision, the record is considered complete
and should not be modified. Subsequent errors identified in a completed record may be corrected by creating a
supplemental record that includes traceability for the correction.
775 Physical Protection of Records
Methods for protecting documents should include vaults, file rooms with fixed fire suppression, fire rated cabinets,
duplicate storage, or combinations of these.
Storage arrangements should address physical damage that could be caused by temperature extremes, moisture,
infestation, electromagnetic fields, excessive light, stacking, theft, and vandalism.
Records should, as a minimum, be protected from:
Exposure to fire, equivalent to an Underwriters Laboratories, Inc., 1.5-hour, or greater, fire resistance rating
Exposure to water damage caused by a 100-year flood
Exposure to windstorm velocities of 100-year recurrence.
