Special administrative controls are required whenever equipment must be operated with
temporary modifications (e.g., jumpers, blocks, bypasses) in place. These controls should
include methods for ensuring that operators are aware of the modified status of the equipment
and its operating limitations. The controls should provide for appropriate safety and technical
reviews, documentation, updating of procedures and drawings, and training.
The status control program requires specific methods for verifying and documenting the
configuration of equipment and systems, changes in equipment status, and compliance with
operational and safety limits. Status control documentation may include checklists, logs, status
boards, or a combination of these. Requirements for status control documentation should be
coordinated with other documentation requirements (e.g., logkeeping) to avoid unnecessary
forms or duplication of information. This ensures that status information is updated as a regular
part of the job, not treated as an added administrative task. It also provides those personnel
having operating responsibility with simple, direct access to current status information.
