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.
This section includes a brief overview of the current and historical use of the
facility, projected future uses, facility configuration, and the basic processes
FACILITY S TRUCTURE
This section provides an overview of the basic facility buildings and structures,
including construction details such as bas ic floor plans, equipment layout,
construction materials, controlling dimensions, and dimensions significant to the
hazard and accident analysis activity. Supply information to support an overall
understanding of the facility structure and the general arr angement of the facility
as it pertains to hazard and accident analysis.
PROCESS D ESCRIPTION
This section describes the individual processes within the facility. Include details
on basic process parameters, including summary of types and quantities o f
hazardous materials, process equipment, instrumentation and control systems and
equipment, basic flow diagrams, and operational considerations associated with
individual processes or the entire facility, including major interfaces and
relationships between SSCs. The intent is to supply information to provide an
understanding of the assessment of normal operations, the safety analysis and its
conclusions, and insight into the types of operations for which a safety
management program must be devised.
CONFINEMENT S YSTEMS
This section identifies and describes the set of structures, systems, and
components that perform confinement functions such as process vessels, glove
boxes, ventilation systems, and facility walls.
