The general approach to implementing DOE O 422.1 is for contractors to develop, for DOE line management approval, documentation demonstrating implementation of the requirements in the contractor requirements document (CRD). DOE line management means the Federal officials such as Secretarial Officers and heads of field elements responsible for DOE facilities and operations. It is necessary to provide a conduct of operations matrix, which is a list of CRD requirements, citing the specific documentation that implements each item, or providing justification for each item that is not implemented.
DOE line management must determine which facilities, other than hazard category 1, 2, and 3 nuclear facilities, require implementation of DOE O 422.1, considering the hazards, consequences of operational mishaps, and impact of disruptions to mission. Hazard category 1, 2, and 3 nuclear facilities are subject to DOE O 422.1r automatically. DOE line management must provide appropriate oversight of conduct of operations. Field organizations must assign DOE facility representatives to oversee conduct of operations in accordance with DOE–STD-1063-2011, Facility Representatives. DOE line management must review and approve documentation prepared by the contractor
