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 November 30, 2002.
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 this TSL.
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. Unique numbers for these documents
will be identified, where possible, and included in future editions of this TSL.
Canceled DOE Standards. Appendix D lists DOE Technical Standards that were
previously developed but have subsequently been canceled. These documents were either
replaced by other technical standards (such as NGSs in some cases) or discontinued
because they were no longer needed by DOE. Copies of these documents may be obtained
by contacting the Performance Assurance Project Office, Oak Ridge National Laboratory,
1060 Commerce Park, MS-6487, Oak Ridge, Tennessee 37830, (865) 574-0398, FAX (865)
Consortia standards. Appendix E lists technical standards developed by industry
organizations (i.e., consortia) that have been adopted for use by DOE in its business
practices. The tracking of the use of consortia standards by DOE and other Federal
agencies was requested by the Interagency Committee on Standards Policy. The listing of
