This specification covers the required content and provides retention requirements for records needed for in-processing of nuclear facility transient workers. This specification is not intended to cover specific skills records (such as equipment operating licenses, ASME inspection qualifications, or welding certifications), nor does it reduce any regulatory requirement for records retention at a licensed nuclear facility. Rather, the records shall contain data elements for the following information: worker identification; occupational external radiation exposure; occupational internal radiation exposure; lifetime occupational radiation exposure history; security screening; medical approval; and radiation worker training.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
Significance and Use
4.1 The standardization of nuclear facility transient worker records will provide the individual transient worker with a greater assurance that the radiation doses that may be received are within regulatory limits.
4.2 This specification establishes a fixed content for nuclear facility transient worker records. Standardizing the content of these records will facilitate interfacing with industry-wide record keeping systems, such as the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) Personnel Data System (PADS).
4.3 The standardization of nuclear facility transient worker records will reduce the time required for in-processing of these workers.
1.1 This specification covers the required content and provides retention requirements for records needed for in-processing of nuclear facility transient workers.
1.2 This specification applies to records to be used for in-processing only.
1.3 This specification is not intended to cover specific skills records (such as equipment operating licenses, ASME inspection qualifications, or welding certifications).
1.4 This specification does not reduce any regulatory requirement for records retention at a licensed nuclear facility.
—Nuclear facilities operated by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) are not licensed by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), nor are other nuclear facilities that may come under the control of the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) or individual agreement states. The references in this specification to licensee, the U.S. NRC Regulatory Guides, and Title 10 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations are to imply appropriate alternative nomenclature with respect to DOE, DOD, or agreement state nuclear facilities. This distinction does not alter the required content of records needed for in-processing of nuclear facility transient workers.
—This specification does not define the form of the required worker records (such as a passport or central computerized record keeping system).
