CONTENT GUIDANCE FOR SECTIONS OF CHAPTER 16
This section provides an introduction to the contents of this chapter based on the
graded approach and includes objectives and scope specific to the chapter as
This section lists the design codes, standards, regulations, and DOE Orders that are
required for establishing the safety basis of the facility. The intent is to provide
only the requirements that are specific for this chapter and pertinent to the safety
analysis, and not a comprehensive listing of all industrial standards or codes or
criteria. SRIDs may be referenced as appropriate.
16.3 DESCRIPTION OF CONCEPTUAL PLANS
This section summarizes conceptual plans for D&D. This summary documents
that planning of operations and design or modifications minimizes the potential for
spread of contamination that would complicate or reduce effectiveness of future
D&D or environmental restoration activities. Assessment of future D&D activities
must be based on an evaluation of the type and magnitude of hazards and the
complexity of processes. The evaluation considers the vulnerabilities to normal
and abnormal events and operational plans to minimize contamination and prevent
an increase in residual risk during or after decommissioning in a manner similar to
the hazard analysis described in Section 3.3, "Hazard Analysis." The evaluation,
however, is conceptual in nature and does not require the extent of documentation
required of a DSA hazard analysis.
The description of design features to facilitate D&D operations is limited to major
modifications of existing facilities.
