Protocol, Development and Maintenance of Criteria and Review Approach Documents - July 2013

July 2013

Protocol for the Development and Maintenance of Criteria and Review Approach Documents

The purpose of this protocol is to establish the requirements and responsibilities for the development and maintenance of Criteria and Review Approach Documents (CRADs) used by the Office of Safety and Emergency Management Evaluations (HS-45). The HS-45 CRADS are carefully selected, modified (if required), and referenced in HS-45 appraisal plans. These plans are used to provide an outline of the activities planned to assess the effectiveness of safety and emergency management processes and practices used by line management and contractor organizations, as well as to evaluate their performance in protecting our workers, the public, and the environment from the hazards associated with U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) activities and sites.
