Abstract

Detailed accounting and reporting procedures used by Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) for maintaining adequate records and control of heavy water supplies and stocks of fissionable materials are described, along with the duties and responsibilities of those administering the system. An appraisal is made of these procedures with respect to their adaptability for use in rapidly expanding research and power programmes. In particular the use of electronic data processing equipment is evaluated. A senior management committee is responsible for ensuring that there is a proper system for recording, reporting and controlling fissionable materials. The Production Planning and Control Branch (Pp and C B) of the Operations Division at the Chalk River Nuclear Laboratories (CRNL) is responsible to the committee for keeping the over-all records and for the general administration of the system. The duties involved are detailed in the report. The system for fissionable materials is segregated into several accountability units 15 of which are allocated to AECL departments and the others to Canadian industries and research organizations. A control ledger is kept by PP and CB for each of the units; however, the units are responsible for preparing detailed accounts of all material under their jurisdiction. The basic  More>>

abstractNote = {Detailed accounting and reporting procedures used by Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) for maintaining adequate records and control of heavy water supplies and stocks of fissionable materials are described, along with the duties and responsibilities of those administering the system. An appraisal is made of these procedures with respect to their adaptability for use in rapidly expanding research and power programmes. In particular the use of electronic data processing equipment is evaluated. A senior management committee is responsible for ensuring that there is a proper system for recording, reporting and controlling fissionable materials. The Production Planning and Control Branch (Pp and C B) of the Operations Division at the Chalk River Nuclear Laboratories (CRNL) is responsible to the committee for keeping the over-all records and for the general administration of the system. The duties involved are detailed in the report. The system for fissionable materials is segregated into several accountability units 15 of which are allocated to AECL departments and the others to Canadian industries and research organizations. A control ledger is kept by PP and CB for each of the units; however, the units are responsible for preparing detailed accounts of all material under their jurisdiction. The basic recording procedures covering the movement Of materials between units, the changing of forms within units, the handling of gains and losses, and disposals, are outlined in the report. The transfer of this data to IBM cards, the ultimate processing through an IBM 1401 computer and the preparation of reports for management approval are described. The heavy-water accounting system based on the same principles as used for the fissionable materials is explained. In this case the control ledger lists the pounds of D{sub 2}O allocated to each of the 15 accountability units. Again the basic recording methods and the use of a computer system are outlined. (author) [French] Les aureurs du memoire decrivent les methodes de gestion comptable utilisees par l'Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd (AECL) pour assurer l'enregistrement et le controle des stocks d'eau lourde et de matieres fissiles; ils decrivent egalement les fonctions et les responsabilites de ceux qui sont charges d'administrer ce systeme. Ils determinent la valeur de ces methodes et etudient dans quelle mesure elles sont adaptables et applicables aux programmes de recherche et de production d'energie qui se developpent rapidement; ils examinent en particulier les avantages du systeme electronique de traitement des donnees. Un comite de gestion a la responsabilite d'assurer la bonne marche du systeme de comptabilite, d'etablissement des rapports et de controle des matieres fissiles. A la Division des operations du Laboratoire nucleaire de Chalk River, le service de planification et de controle de la production est responsable envers le comite de la tenue de tous les registres et du fonctionnement general du systeme. Les differentes taches que cela implique sont decrites en detail dans le memoire. Le systeme de comptabilite des matieres fissiles est divise en un certain nombre de sections comptables dont 15 sont du ressort des differents departements de l'AECL et les autres confiees a des industries canadiennes et a des organismes de recherche. Pour chaque section, le service de planification et de controle de la production tient un livre; ces sections ont toutefois la responsabilite de preparer des etats comptables detailles pour toutes les matieres soumises a leur controle. Les principales methodes comptables utilisees pour enregistrer les transferts de matieres d'une section a l'autre, les transformations subies par les matieres dans une meme section, le traitement des gains et les pertes de matieres, l'elimination des dechets, sont exposees dans le memoire. La transcription de ces donnees sur carte IBM, leur traitement final a l 'aided'une calculatrice IBM 1401 et la preparation des rapports soumis a l'approbation du comite de gestion sont egalement decrits. Les auteurs fournissent des explications sur le systeme de comptabilite de l'eau lourde qui repose sur les memes principes que le systeme de comptabilite des matieres fissiles. Dans ce cas, on inscrit dans le grand registre de controle le poids d e D{sub 2}O attribue a chacune des 15 sections comptables. La encore, les auteurs exposent les principales methodes comptables et decrivent l'utilisation de la calculatrice. (author) [Spanish] Los autores describen detalladamente los procedimientos de contabilidad e informacion que emplea la Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) para mantener registros adecuados y ejercer un control eficiente de los suministros de agua pesada y de las existencias de materiales fisionables, y exponen los deberes y las responsabilidades de las personas encargadas de la fiscalizacion. Evaluan estos procedimientos desde el punto de vista de su adaptabilidad a programas de investigacion y de produccion de energia en rapido desarrollo y tratan en particular del empleo de equipo electronico para la sistematizacion de los datos. Un comite administrativo superior vela para que se aplique un sistema adecuado de registro y fiscalizacion de los materiales nucleares. La Seccion de Planeamiento y Control de la Produccion de la Division de Operaciones d e los Laboratorios Nucleares de Chalk River (CRNL) responde ante dicho comite del mantenimiento de los registros y del buen funcionamiento del sistema. En la memoria se exponen detalladamente sus funciones. Para los materiales fisionables, el sistema consta de varias unidades contables, quince de las cuales corresponden a departamentos de la AECL y las demas a industrias y centros de investigacion del Canada- La Seccion de Planeamiento y Control de la Produccion lleva un libro mayor para cada una de las unidades, pero estas contabilizan detalladamente todos los materiales que se hallan bajo su jurisdiccion. En la memoria se exponen a grandes rasgos los procedimientos basicos para el registro de las transferencias de materiales entre las unidades, el intercambio de formularios dentro de cada unidad, las perdidas y ganancias y las evacuaciones. Se explica tambien como estos datos pasan a fichas IBM, su sistematizacion en una calculadora IBM 1401, y la preparacion de los informes que se someteran a la aprobacion de las autoridades administrativas. El sistema de contabilidad para el agua pesada esta basado en esos mismos principios. En el libro mayor se inscriben las libras de D{sub 2}O asignadas a cada una de las quince unidades contables. Los autores describen tambien sucintamente los metodos basicos de registro y la forma en que se emplea la computadora.
