The state of being operated or having the potential for being operated to fulfill the mission it was designed for. A facility that cannot be operated on a day-to-day
basis because of refueling, extensive modifications, or technical problems is still considered to be operable. A facility that has been officially placed in a standby or shutdown condition, or in an environmental remediation status, but in which personnel manipulate or handle fissionable materials, radioactive materials, or tritium in such form and quantity that a nuclear hazard potentially exists to the employees or the general public, or manipulate the controls of equipment used to produce, process, transfer, or store such materials, is also considered operable.
