10 CFR Part 1017, Identification and Protection of Unclassified Controlled Nuclear Information specifies many detailed policies and requirements concerning the UCNI program.

DOE O 471.1B, Identification and Protection of Unclassified Controlled Nuclear Information, specifies additional policies and requirements concerning the Department of Energy (DOE) UCNI program.

UCNI General Guideline, GG-5, is a record of decisions made by the Director, OC, as to what general subject areas are UCNI. Note: GG-5 may only be used by the Director, OC, to make determinations as to whether information is UCNI. All other UCNI Reviewing Officials must use UCNI guidance.
