Code of Record


A set of design and operational requirements, including Federal and state laws in effect at the time a facility or item of equipment was designed and accepted by DOE. It is (i) initiated during the conceptual design phase, placed under configuration control to ensure it is updated to include more detailed design requirements as they are developed during preliminary design, (ii) controlled during final design and construction with a process for reviewing and evaluating new and revised requirements to determine their impact on project safety, cost and schedule before a decision is taken to revise the Code of Record, and (iii) maintained and controlled through facility decommissioning. The Code of Record may be defined in contracts, Standards or Requirements Identification Documents (or their equivalent), or project-specific documents. [DOESTD-1189-2016]

A set of requirements, including Federal and state laws, as defined in contracts and Standards or Requirements Identification Documents (or their equivalent), that are in effect at the time a facility or item of equipment was designed and accepted by DOE. It is initiated during the conceptual design phase and prior to approval of CD-1. It is placed under configuration control to ensure it is updated to include more detailed design requirements as they are developed during preliminary design and prior to approval of CD-2. It is controlled during final design and construction with a process for reviewing and evaluating new and revised requirements to determine their impact on project safety, cost and schedule before a decision is taken to revise the Code of Record. It is maintained and controlled through facility decommissioning.
