"The radiological control program discussed in DOE-STD-1098-2008 goes beyond the scope of, and includes more details than, the documented radiation protection program (RPP) required by 10 CFR 835, ―Occupational Radiation Protection.‖ To ensure implementation of a comprehensive and
coherent radiological control program that exceeds basic requirements and provides a substantial safety margin, DOE encourages its contractors to implement the provisions of DOE-STD-1098- 2008 to the extent appropriate to facility hazards and operations, consistent with DOE’s integrated
safety management program. Should any conflicts arise between the site-specific radiological control manual and the documented RPP, the requirements of the documented RPP should take precedence. Such conflicts should be expeditiously resolved."
