Invoked Technical Standards

Technical Standards provide non-mandatory best practices and acceptable methods for meeting requirements. If a Technical Standard is invoked by a DOE Order, the Technical Standard becomes a requirements document in accordance with the applicability and conditions described within the invoking Order. DOE O 251.1D, Appendix J provides a definition for “Invoked Technical Standard.”

The lists below identify the Technical Standards that are currently invoked by DOE Orders. The list will be adjusted as Orders are updated, if newer versions of the Technical Standards are invoked.
