LLNS Beryllium Consent Order Fact Sheet

In November 2010, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) issued a consent order to Lawrence Livermore National Security, LLC (LLNS) for deficiencies related to LLNS’s implementation of DOE’s Chronic Beryllium Disease Prevention Program (CBDPP) regulation at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. The consent order requires LLNS to implement corrective actions that will ensure LLNS meets DOE requirements for assessing and controlling beryllium hazards and minimizes potential worker exposures to legacy beryllium hazards in Laboratory buildings.
