Non-Government Standards Bodies (NGSBs). National and international
scientific, technical, professional, industry, or other organizations, societies, or
associations not organized for profit which conduct standardization activities and
develop, establish, or coordinate NGSs.
Preparing Activity (PS). DOE Headquarters or field organization that has
accepted responsibility for development, coordination, approval, maintenance,
and providing technical advise for a specific DOE Technical Standard. The PA
may use a single individual, a topical committee, an ad-hoc committee, or may
designate an agent to develop the technical standard.
3. GENERAL GUIDANCE
The following paragraphs describe the appendices contained in this TSL.
DOE Technical Standards. Appendix A lists the DOE Technical Standards that
have been published by DOE as of July 1, 2006.
Non-Government Standards Adopted by DOE. Appendix B lists the NGSs
adopted for use by DOE through the reference of the standards in published DOE
directives (e.g., rules, orders, manuals, and guides). Some standards developed by
non-Government standards bodies are issued without a specific identification
number. Unique numbers for these documents will be identified through
coordination with the NGSB, where possible, and included in future editions of
Other Government Documents. Appendix C lists other Government documents
identified in published DOE directives that are referenced and used in a manner
similar to non-Government standards and DOE Technical Standards. The listing
of these documents in DOE directives serves to record DOE's interest in the
documents. Note that some documents are listed without an identifying number.
