In paragraphs 4.a(3)(a) and 4.a(4)(b)1 & 2, is it correct to assume "fissile material packaging" means the same as "fissile material packagings certified by the DOE CO and/or NNSA CO?

In 4.a(5), International Shipments, is the required use of 171.12 (North American Shipments) implied since the Transport Canada's Transport of Dangerous Goods Regulations are specifically called out?

In 4.f, Special Permits, no time window provided for submission to DOE CO or NNSA CO. This is CRITICAL as DOT demands the SP be submitted at least 60 days in advance of expiration for the SP to remain valid past its expiration. How long will the CO take before submitting the SP to DOT? What is the minimum time frame necessary to assure the time frame/requirement of 49 CFR 107.1(a) and 107.109(b) are met?

In 4.h, the term "significant" is used. How is this defined with regard to this DOE Order?

Thank you

In 4.f, Special Permits, no time window provided for submission to DOE CO or NNSA CO. This is CRITICAL as DOT demands the SP be submitted at least 60 days in advance of expiration for the SP to remain valid past its expiration. How long will the CO take before submitting the SP to DOT? What is the minimum time frame necessary to assure the time frame/requirement of 49 CFR 107.1(a) and 107.109(b) are met? This information will be provided in the implementation guidance to the field.

In 4.h, the term "significant" is used. How is this defined with regard to this DOE Order? DOE Order 210.2A, DOE Corporate Operating Experience Program, is subjective and allows DOE sites to apply it accordingly.

Although Order 461.1D is listed as a current directive and states "Approved 12-20-2016," the PDF also states "DRAFT" above the order number in the upper right corner of page 1.
