This standard establishes essential elements of a Department of Energy (DOE) program
for testing HEPA filters to be installed in DOE nuclear facilities or used in DOE-
contracted activities. A key element is the testing of HEPA filters for performance at a
DOE Filter Test Facility (FTF) prior to installation. Other key elements are (1) providing
for a DOE HEPA filter procurement program, and (2) verifying that HEPA filters to be
installed in nuclear facilities appear on a " ualified Products List" (QPL).
The following documents are a part of this standard to the extent specified. Unless
otherwise stated, the issue date and revision number of a referenced document in
effect on the issue date of this standard shall apply. In the event of conflict between
provisions of this standard and provisions of the referenced documents, the text of this
standard shall take precedence. Appeals in this matter may be addressed to the DOE
Preparing Activity (currently DP-45), which is designated as the DOE entity responsible
for issuance and interpretation of this standard.
