Dear Mr. Chairman:
On August 17, 2005, the Secretary of Energy approved the DOE Implementation Plan IP that addresses Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board (DNFSB) Recommendation 2005-1, Nuclear Materials Packaging. One of the deliverables in the IP is the DOE resolution of the DOE document type that will be used for the new packaging anti storage criteria.
Per the implementation plan the 2005-1 working group has reviewed this matter and has selected a manual supporting 10 CFR 835 as the appropriate directive document type. The enclosed analysis describes the working group review.
