Dear Mr. Chairman:
The enclosed copy of draft DOE Manual M 441.1, Nuclear Material Packaging Manual, is forwarded for your review and comment. This satisfies commitment 5.1-3 in Appendix D of the implementation plan (IP) for recommendation 2005-1, Nuclear Material Packaging.
The next milestone in Section 5.1 of the 2005-1 IP is forwarding the manual to the DOE 2005-1 Technical Review Board (TRB) by April 30, 2006 to begin the final TRB review. Therefore, your comments are requested by April 21, 2006, in order to allow one week for resolution and updating the manual before it is sent to the TRB.
Please contact me at 301-903-4407 if you have any questions.
