    1. Scope

    1. Scope 1.1 This guide covers a procedure for developing design criteria for a facility. The procedure is designed to capture and apply the inputs of the diverse members of a planning team. 1.1.1 The procedure includes the development of preliminary design criteria based on consideration of the assets associated with a facility in terms of their value to their users and the likelihoods that different aggressors will target them. The preliminary design criteria are then evaluated using a preliminary risk analysis. 1.1.2 The planning team may then adjust the preliminary design criteria to reflect the risk analysis or the cost necessary to implement the design criteria. The planning team may also adjust the criteria as necessary according to the professional judgments of the members of the team based on local and regional considerations. 1.2 The resulting design criteria will be the basis for planning and preliminary design. It may be further adjusted during the design process based on the more detailed risk analysis process in UFC 4-020-02. 1.3 The values given in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are for information only. 1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    This guide will be used by architects and architectural engineers to plan security aspects of building design.
