Title: The U.S. Department of Energy`s (DOE) response to requests for exemption from provisions of Title 10 code of Federal Regulations Part 835

Following the issuance of Title 10 Code of Federal Regulations Part 835 (10 CFR 835), {open_quotes}Occupational Radiation Protection,{close_quotes} in the Federal Register on 14 December 1993, all DOE facilities subject to the rule provisions were required to submit a radiation protection program that Sets forth the plans, schedules, and other measures for achieving compliance with the rule by 1 January 1996. Numerous DOE facilities identified areas of the rule where their facility needed either (1) a clarification of the intent and expectation of a provisions or (2) an exemption from the provisions. In response, the DOE Office of Worker Protection Programs and Hazards Management (EH-52) prepared and disseminated eight Radiological Control Technical Positions (RCTPs). These RCTPs provided clarifications of DOE`s intent and expectations for compliance with specific provisions of the rule. EH-52 also processed requests for exemptions from provisions of 10 CFR 835 received from twelve different DOE facilities. The DOE issued 21 separate responses to these facilities, each one addressing the specific exepemtion request. Each response contained (1) an Exemption Decision and (2) a Technical Position discussing the basis for either denying or granting with conditions, as applicable, the exemption request.
