6. Utilization. Once a safety analysis document is approved, copies are sent to the
affected organizations, including operations and applicable facility engineering,
to incorporate the administrative controls from the safety analysis document
into the affected operating documents. User organizations must obtain the
packaging organization review of all operating procedures that incorporate
instructions or administrative controls found in COCS, SARPS, SEPS, DAPS,
DOT exemptions, and Federal and state packaging requirements to ensure that
they are properly incorporated.
Onsite packages currently approved for onsite use should be cataloged and
described in a hazardous materials packaging directory maintained by the
packaging organization. New packages are added to the directory as they are
developed and approved.

RADIOLOGICAL CONTROL ORGANIZATIONS
The radiological control organization must be structured so that all of the activities required
to provide support to line management and workers can be accomplished.
3.3.1
Management Commitment
Management commitment to safety is the most important characteristic of an
effective radiological control program. If the management commitment to safety is
strong, the radiological control program will be valued and respected. The
radiological control program should be provided adequate authority to permit
performance of necessary assignments and program implementation. Management
commitment to the ALARA concept is particularly important [see Article 111,
Radiological Control , Ch. 1. (DOE, 2004)]. Adequate personnel, equipment, and
funding should be available as a part of this commitment.
3.3.2
Radiological Control Organization Independence and Reporting Level
The radiological control organization should be independent of the line
organization responsible for production, operation, or research activities and should
have an equivalent reporting level. Because health physics personnel should have
the authority to balance operations with safety, they should not report directly to
the administrators of operations. When shift work is involved, the operations shift
supervisor may make minor health physics decisions in support of the shift's
Radiological Control Technicians (RCTs); however, decisions involving basic
policies and procedures should be directed to a separate health physics
organization.
If a safety organization includes the health physics program, it should be high
enough in the company to assure direct access to the company president or
equivalent. If the health physics program is administered by a separate radiological
control organization, that
