Code of Federal Regulations Nuclear Activities

April 24,2010

This part sets forth the procedures to govern the conduct of persons involved in DOE nuclear activities and, in particular, to achieve compliance with the DOE Nuclear Safety Requirements by all persons subject to those requirements.

10 C.F.R. 820, Procedural Rules for DOE Nuclear Activities, sets forth the procedures to implement the provisions of the Price-Anderson Amendments Act of 1988 (PAAA), which subjects DOE contractors to potential civil and criminal penalties for violations of DOE Nuclear Safety Requirements.  DOE's Nuclear Safety Requirements set forth the requirements for DOE’s contractors, subcontractors and suppliers to ensure that DOE’s nuclear facilities and activities are operated in a manner that protects worker and public safety and the environment.  10 C.F.R. 820 was first established as a final rule in August 1993
