10 CFR Part 810 Consultants

FLANK offers 10 CFR Part 810 information security consulting services for organizations requiring compliance with the Department of Energy (DOE) provisions.  DOE effectively has statutory responsibility for authorizing the transfer of unclassified nuclear technology and assistance to foreign atomic energy activities within the United States or abroad. In accordance with § 57 b. (2). of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 (AEA), persons may engage, directly or indirectly, in the production or development of special nuclear material outside the United States only upon authorization by the Secretary of Energy, with the concurrence of the Department of State (DOS) and after consulting with the Departments of Defense (DoD) and Commerce (DOC), and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). 

Therefore, this, requirement, as implemented by DOE, applies to technology transfers and assistance related to certain nuclear fuel-cycle activities, commercial nuclear power plants, and research and test reactors.

10 CFR Part 810 Revisions

On February 7, 2015, the DOE issued its final rule revising Part 810, the first comprehensive update of the regulation since 1986 to a much-needed antiquated provision.  The regulation was modernized in the following manner

  • Articulate clearly the activities and technologies that are within the scope of Part 810
  • Provide expanded general authorizations for operational safety activities, the separation of medical isotopes from spent nuclear fuel, and for transfers to foreign nationals working at NRC-licensed facilities and granted Unescorted Access in accordance with NRC regulations.
  • Provide an affirmative list of destinations that are generally authorized to receive transfers of non-sensitive nuclear technology. The Federal Register published the final rule on February 23, 2015. The rule was in effect as of March 25, 2015.
