Summary
Most of the work at DOE facilities is carried out by organizations under contract to DOE. Because of the risks inherent with handling nuclear materials, and the potential liabilities associated with inadvertent exposure for workers, the public, and the environment, the law authorizes DOE to indemnify, or agree to pay damages for, those contractors that could have an accident in handling nuclear materials, and whose actions could cause damage. In 1988, the Congress enacted legislation permitting DOE to hold its contractors accountable for meeting its nuclear safety requirements through a system of civil monetary penalties. DOE determined that to be able to assess civil penalties, existing safety requirements would have to be reissued as enforceable rules. The legislation also named certain contractors as exempt from having to pay the penalties. Concerned about DOE's efforts to implement its nuclear safety enforcement program, you asked us to determine: (1) what enforceable nuclear safety rules DOE has issued, (2) which DOE facilities and contractors are covered by these rules, (3) how DOE has enforced the nuclear safety rules, and (4) whether there is a continued need for exempting certain contractors from paying penalties for violating nuclear safety rules
