                                 CHAPTER III

                 PROTECTION AND CONTROL OF CLASSIFIED MATTER

1.  GENERAL.

    a.   Classification levels shall be used in determining the degree of
         protection and control required for classified matter.

    b.   Access to classified matter shall be limited to persons who possess
         appropriate access authorization and who require such access
         (need-to-know) in the performance of official duties.  Controls
         shall be established to detect and deter unauthorized access to
         classified matter.

    c.   Custodians and authorized users of classified matter are
         responsible for the protection and control of such matter.

    d.   Buildings and rooms containing classified matter shall be afforded
         the security measures necessary to prevent unauthorized persons
         from gaining access to classified matter, specifically to include
         security measures to prevent persons outside the facility
         protective zone from viewing or hearing classified information.
         Conference rooms and areas specifically designated for classified
         discussions shall follow Technical Surveillance Countermeasures
         Program requirements.

    e.   Sensitive Compartmented Information Facilities shall be afforded
         physical protection in accordance with the Director of Central
         Intelligence Directives (see Attachment 1).  Any matters pertaining
         to this subject shall be referred to the Director of Safeguards and
         Security for coordination.

2.  IN USE.  Classified matter in use shall be constantly attended by or
    under the control of a person or persons having the proper access
    authorization and a need-to-know, who are responsible for its
    protection.  (Exception:  Local safeguard and security authorities may
    establish written local policy, addressing operational needs, that
    allows Confidential and/or Secret matter to be left temporally
    unattended within an appropriately locked room, within an attended
    Limited Area, Protected Area, or Exclusion Area, during normal working
    hours.  The period of time shall not exceed 2 hours.  Unattended within
    a locked room for up to 2 hour periods in such cases is considered "In
    Use".)

3.  IN STORAGE.

    a.   General.  Classified matter shall be stored in a manner to prevent
         unauthorized persons from gaining access.

    b.   Restrictions on Use of Security Containers.

         (1)  Funds, firearms, medical items, controlled substances,
              precious metals, or other items susceptible to theft shall not
              be stored in the same security container that is used to store
              classified matter.

         (2)  Security containers shall not bear any external classification
              or other type markings that would indicate the level of
              classified matter authorized to be stored within the
              container.  For identification purposes, each security
              container shall externally bear an assigned number.

    c.   Requirements.  Security containers required for the storage of
         classified matter shall, as a minimum, conform to the applicable
         requirements of Chapter IX of this Manual.  Classified matter that
         is not under the personal control of an authorized person shall be
         stored as prescribed below.

         (1)  Top Secret Matter.  Top Secret matter shall be stored in a
              locked, General Services Administration-approved security
              container.  The security container shall be located within a
              Security Area providing as a minimum the protection level of a
              Limited Area.  In addition, the security container shall be
              under intrusion detection alarm protection or protective
              patrol, with inspections on a 4-hour basis.

         (2)  Secret Matter.  Secret matter shall be stored in a manner
              authorized for Top Secret matter or in one of the following
              ways:

              (a)  In a locked General Services Administration approved
                   security container.

                   1    General Services Administration-approved security
                        containers not located within the minimum protection
                        level of a Limited Security Area shall be under
                        intrusion detection alarm protection.

                   2    Steel filing cabinets, not meeting General Services
                        Administration requirements, but approved for use
                        prior to the date of this Manual, may continue to be
                        used until there is a need for replacement.  They
                        shall be equipped with a minimum of an Underwriter
                        Laboratories Group 1R, built-in, changeable
                        combination lock.  Steel filing cabinets located
                        within the minimum protection level of a Limited
                        Security Area shall be under intrusion detection
                        alarm protection or protective patrol on an 8-hour
                        basis.  If the steel filing cabinet is not located
                        within a minimum protection level of a Limited
                        Security Area, it shall be under intrusion detection
                        alarm protection.

                   3    In open storage or in unlocked cabinets within a
                        locked vault or vault-type room.

              (b)  Material whose size, weight, or construction offers
                   substantial resistance to unauthorized removal or
                   surreptitious access to contents shall be stored within
                   the minimum protection level of a Limited Security Area
                   in one of the following ways:

                   1    Within a locked building, or in a locked room within
                        a building.  The building or room shall provide
                        visible evidence that an intruder has attempted to
                        penetrate or has penetrated the building or room.
                        In addition, the room or building shall be under
                        intrusion detection alarm protection or subject to
                        protective patrols on an 8-hour basis.

                   2    In open storage within a securely locked and
                        separately fenced area.  The classified items, as
                        appropriate, shall be concealed from unauthorized
                        view, and the storage area shall be intrusion
                        detection alarm protected or subject to protective
                        patrols on a 4-hour basis.

                   3    In open storage without a separately fenced and
                        locked area.  The classified matter shall be
                        concealed from unauthorized view.  The storage
                        location shall be under intrusion detection alarm
                        protection or subject to protective patrols on a
                        2-hour basis.

              (c)  Material whose size, weight, or construction offers
                   substantial resistance to unauthorized removal, but
                   nevertheless is susceptible to unauthorized removal or
                   surreptitious access shall be protected in the manner set
                   forth in subparagraphs 3c(2)(b) 1, 2, or 3 above, except
                   that protective patrols shall occur at intervals not to
                   exceed 2 hours.

         (3)  Confidential Matter.  Confidential matter shall be stored in a
              manner authorized for Secret matter or in one of the following
              ways:

              (a)  In a locked, General Services Administration-approved
                   security container or steel filing cabinet.  Steel filing
                   cabinets shall be equipped with a minimum of an
                   Underwriters Laboratories Group 1R, built-in, changeable
                   combination lock, or lock bar with combination padlock
                   that meets Federal Specification FF-P-110 "Padlock,
                   Changeable Combination."  If the steel filing cabinet is
                   not located within the minimum protection level of a
                   Limited Area or Exclusion Area, then it shall be under
                   central alarm station protection.

              (b)  Time intervals for the protective personnel patrols
                   referenced in subparagraphs 3c(2)(b) 1, 2, and 3 above
                   shall be changed to 24, 12, and 6 hours respectively for
                   Confidential matter.

    d.   Protective Personnel.

         (1)  In the event that an unattended repository or location
              containing classified matter is found open, the repository
              shall be secured by designated protective personnel and a
              custodian shall be notified immediately.  The contents shall
              be checked no later than the next workday.  If there is an
              indication of a violation or compromise, the contents shall be
              checked immediately by a custodian, being careful not to
              destroy fingerprints or other physical evidence.  Report as
              required by DOE 5639.1, INFORMATION SECURITY PROGRAM, and DOE
              5000.3B, OCCURRENCE REPORTING AND PROCESSING OF OPERATIONS
              INFORMATION.  Refer to DOE 5639.1 regarding the conduct of
              preliminary inquiries.

         (2)  Response to intrusion detection alarms shall be by protective
              personnel, private security firms, or local law enforcement
              personnel, as documented in approved security plans.

    e.   Alternate Storage Locations.

         (1)  With prior written Departmental approval, a bank safe deposit
              box/vault may be used for storage of Secret or Confidential
              matter, provided that the lock and keys to the box/vault are
              changed prior to such use and the customer's key is furnished
              only to persons authorized access to the contents.

         (2)  Federal Records Centers approved as outlined in DOE 5634.1B
              may be used for the storage of classified information.

4.  MARKING.  Within 6 months of the date of this Order the following
    requirements shall be fully implemented.  Classified matter marked
    according to previous requirements need not be remarked to conform with
    the following requirements.  Classified matter must clearly indicate the
    classification level (and category if RD or FRD).

    a.   General.  Classified matter must be properly and fully marked to
         indicate the classification level (and category if Restricted Data
         (RD) or Formerly Restricted Data (FRD)) and any other required
         notations.  Specific examples of markings, including their use,
         format, and placement are contained in "The Guide for
         Implementation of CLASSIFIED MATTER PROTECTION AND CONTROL."

    b.   Originator Identification.  Classified documents shall be marked to
         show the name of the organization responsible for its preparation
         and the date of preparation.

    c.   Classification Level.  The overall classification level of a
         document shall be marked on the outside of the front cover (if
         any), on the title page (if any), on the first page, and on the
         outside of the back cover or last page.  These markings shall be
         clearly distinguishable from the informational text.  Classified
         material shall have classification level stamped, printed, etched,
         written, engraved, painted, or affixed by means of a tag, sticker,
         decal, or similar device.  When marking is not practical, written
         notification of the markings shall be furnished to recipients.  The
         highest classification level of each page shall be marked at the
         top and bottom of interior pages of classified documents; or when
         individual page marking is not feasible, the overall classification
         level of the document may be used instead.  These markings shall be
         clearly distinguishable from the informational text.

    d.   Classification Category.  Documents containing RD or FRD must be
         marked in the following manner:  the overall classification
         category shall be marked on the outside of the front cover (if
         any), on the title page (if any), and on the first page.
         Classified material shall have classification category stamped,
         printed, etched, written, engraved, painted, or affixed by means of
         a tag, sticker, decal, or similar device.  When marking is not
         practical, written notification of the markings shall be furnished
         to recipients.  These markings shall be clearly distinguishable
         from the informational text.

    e.   Components.  When components of a document are to be used
         separately, each major component shall be marked as a separate
         document.  Components include:  annexes or appendices, attachments
         to a letter, and major sections of a report.  If an entire major
         component is unclassified, "UNCLASSIFIED" may be marked at the top
         and bottom of the first page and a statement included, such as:
         "All portions of this (annex, appendix, etc.) are UNCLASSIFIED."
         When this method of marking is used, no further markings are
         required on the unclassified component.

    f.   Portions.

         (1)  For National Security Information (NSI) classified by an
              Original Classifier each section, part, paragraph, or similar
              portion of a classified document shall be marked to show the
              classification level or be identified as unclassified.  In
              marking portions, the symbols (TS) for TOP SECRET, (S) for
              SECRET, (C) for CONFIDENTIAL, and (U) for UNCLASSIFIED shall
              be used.  Classification levels of portions of a document
              shall be shown by the appropriate classification symbol placed
              immediately following the portion's letter or number, or in
              the absence of letters or numbers, immediately before the
              beginning of the portion.

         (2)  Documents containing RD or FRD are not required to be portion
              marked.

         (3)  Portions of U.S. documents containing foreign government
              information shall be marked to reflect the foreign country of
              origin as well as the appropriate classification level, for
              example, (U.K.-C indicating United Kingdom - Confidential).

         (4)  Portions of U.S. documents containing NATO information shall
              indicate NATO or COSMIC, including the appropriate
              classification level, for example, (NATO-S) or (COSMIC-TS).

         (5)  If portion marking is appropriate for Foreign Government
              Information this notice may be abbreviated as "FGI."

    g.   Subjects and Titles.  Except for extraordinary circumstances,
         unclassified subjects and titles shall be used for classified
         documents.  Subjects or titles shall be marked with the appropriate
         classification level (and classification category if RD or FRD),
         for example, (U), for unclassified titles or subjects and, when
         necessary, (TS), (S), or (C) for classified titles or subjects.
         The symbols shall be placed immediately following the title or
         subject.

    h.   Classifier Information.  DOE 5650.2B, IDENTIFICATION OF CLASSIFIED
         INFORMATION, specifies the classifier information that must be
         contained on classified matter.  These include:

         (1)  Date of classification.

         (2)  Name, position title, and organization of the Authorized
              Classifier.

         (3)  Designation of the guide or source document, if derivatively
              classified (NSI) only; and

         (4)  Duration of classification (NSI only).

    i.   Top Secret Destruction Date.  When upon origination or reproduction
         it is determined that TOP SECRET matter shall be destroyed at a
         particular time, the classifier shall note this fact on all copies
         except record copies.

    j.   Caveats.  In addition to the markings specified above, as
         appropriate, classified matter shall be marked with caveats as
         indicated below:

         (1)  Dissemination and Reproduction Notices.  When programmatic
              requirements require special dissemination or reproduction
              limitations on classified information the following notation
              shall be used:

              (a)  "FURTHER DISSEMINATION ONLY AS AUTHORIZED BY GOVERNMENT
                   AGENCY" apply to documents whose further dissemination
                   within the receiving contractor facility is restricted to
                   persons authorized by the addressee.  Dissemination
                   outside the facility is prohibited without the approval
                   of the contracting activity.

              (b)  "REPRODUCTION REQUIRES APPROVAL OF ORIGINATOR" apply to
                   documents that may not be reproduced without the
                   specific, written approval of the originator.

         (2)  Foreign Government Information.  The notice "FOREIGN
              GOVERNMENT INFORMATION" is used on U.S. documents to ensure
              that information of foreign origin is not declassified
              prematurely or made accessible to nationals of a third country
              without the consent of the originator.

         (3)  North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Information.

              (a)  NATO CLASSIFIED.  NATO has four levels of classified
                   information:  COSMIC TOP SECRET (CTS), NATO SECRET (NS),
                   NATO CONFIDENTIAL (NC), and NATO RESTRICTED (NR).  When
                   "North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)" or "COSMIC"
                   precedes a classification information is the property of
                   NATO.

              (b)  NATO UNCLASSIFIED (NU).  This marking, applied to NATO
                   information that does not require security protection, is
                   handled in accordance with information management
                   procedures.

              (c)  ATOMAL.  Another category of NATO information is called
                   ATOMAL.  This category is either U.S. Restricted Data or
                   Formerly Restricted Data or United Kingdom Atomic
                   Information that has been officially released to NATO.
                   ATOMAL information is classified either COSMIC TOP SECRET
                   ATOMAL (CTSA), NATO SECRET ATOMAL (NSA), or NATO
                   CONFIDENTIAL ATOMAL (NCA), depending upon the damage that
                   would result from unauthorized disclosure.

         (4)  Director of Central Intelligence Information.  The following
              are markings authorized for use only by the intelligence
              community for intelligence information:

              (a)  No Dissemination to Contractors (NOCONTRACT).  This
                   marking indicates that the information contained in the
                   document must not be released to contractors or
                   consultants without the permission of the originating
                   agency.

              (b)  No Foreign Dissemination (NOFORN).  This marking
                   indicates that the information contained in the document
                   must not be released to foreign nationals or any parties
                   representing foreign interests, nor shall it be released
                   to members of the public because this is considered to be
                   tantamount to foreign disclosure.

              (c)  Originator Controlled (ORCON).  This marking indicates
                   that the document bearing the marking is controlled by
                   the originator.  Reproduction or redistribution of such
                   documents require the permission of the originator.

              (d)  Proprietary Information (PROPIN).  This marking indicates
                   that the information contained in the document must not
                   be released in any form to an individual, organization,
                   or foreign government that has any interests, actual or
                   potential, in competition with the source of the
                   information, without the permission of the originating
                   agency.

              (e)  REL (Authorized for Release to Country).  This marking
                   applies to classified intelligence an originator has
                   predetermined to be releasable or has released through
                   established foreign disclosure procedures and channels to
                   a specified foreign country(ies), or international
                   organization(s).

              (f)  Warning Notice--Intelligence Sources and Methods
                   (WNINTEL).  This marking applies to documents containing
                   information relating to intelligence sources or methods.

         (5)  Weapon Data.  The following are markings associated with
              atomic weapons or nuclear explosive devices:

              (a)  Sigma Category.  This marking refers to Restricted Data
                   and Formerly Restricted Data specifically defined in ten
                   separate categories (1-5 and 9-13) concerning the design,
                   manufacture, or use of atomic weapons or nuclear
                   explosive devices.

              (b)  Critical Nuclear Weapons Design Information (CNWDI).  A
                   Department of Defense marking designating TOP SECRET or
                   SECRET Restricted Data revealing the theory of operation
                   or design of the components of a thermonuclear or
                   implosion-type fission bomb, warhead, demolition
                   munitions, or test device.

              (c)  Sensitive Use Control Information (SUCI).  This marking
                   refers to classified matter containing information, the
                   knowledge of which would significantly enhance an
                   adversary's ability to circumvent a weapon's use control
                   features.

    k.   Remarking Downgraded/Declassified Matter.  Matter marked for
         automatic downgrading or declassification may be downgraded, or
         declassified and remarked accordingly.  Matter not marked for
         automatic downgrading or declassification will remain classified
         until a determination is made by the originating agency.

    l.   Marking Special Documents.  The following are specific placement
         requirements for markings identified above:

         (1)  Charts, Maps, Drawings, and Tracings.  The overall
              classification level of the document shall be marked under the
              legend, title, or scale block.  Classification markings shall
              be visible when charts, maps, drawings, or tracings are folded
              or rolled.

         (2)  Messages.  The overall classification level (and category if
              RD or FRD) of the message shall be the first item of
              information in the text.  When messages are printed by an
              automated system, markings may be applied by that system,
              provided the markings are clearly distinguishable from the
              informational text.  If applicable, downgrading instructions
              shall be included on the last line of text and may be
              abbreviated as follows:

                        DNG/S or C (date or event); or
                          DECL (date or event).

         (3)  Microforms.  Microforms contain images or text in sizes too
              small to be read by the unaided eye.  Markings specified by
              this chapter shall be marked on the medium or its container,
              to be readable by the unaided eye.  These markings shall also
              be included on the image.  Markings shall consider the media
              involved.

         (4)  Motion Picture Films or Video Tapes.  Classified motion
              picture films and video tapes shall be marked at the beginning
              and end of each reel.  Such markings shall be visible when
              projected or viewed.

         (5)  Photographs.  Roll negatives or positives shall be marked at
              the beginning and end of each strip.  Prints and reproductions
              shall show these markings on the face side of the print, if
              possible.  When this is not possible, the marking shall be
              applied to the reverse side, or affixed by pressure tape
              label, staple strip, or other comparable means.  When
              self-processing film or paper is used to photograph or
              reproduce classified information, if all parts of the last
              exposure have not been removed from the camera the camera
              shall be protected at the classification level (and category
              if RD or FRD) of information contained on the media.

         (6)  Transparencies, Slides, and Sheet-Film.  Classification level
              and category shall be shown on the image of the first
              transparency, slide, sheet film of a series.  All other
              applicable markings specified in this chapter shall be shown
              on the border or frame, or in the accompanying documentation.
              The succeeding transparencies, slides, and sheet film must
              indicate classification level only. When a set of
              transparencies, slides, or sheet film is handled and
              controlled as a single document, only the title slide or
              transparency requires the other applicable markings.

         (7)  Recordings.  Magnetic, electronic, or sound recordings shall
              indicate the overall classification level (and category if RD
              or FRD) at the beginning and end of the recording.

         (8)  Automated Information Systems Media.  Specific requirements
              for the handling of automated information system media are
              addressed in DOE 5639.6, CLASSIFIED COMPUTER SECURITY PROGRAM.

         (9)  Translations.  U.S. classified information translated into a
              foreign language shall be marked as U.S. classified
              information, and show the equivalent foreign government
              classification.

         (10) Radiographs and X-rays.  When standard markings are not
              practical on the radiograph or x-ray, they shall be placed on
              the jacket, folder, or similar covering.  The user must ensure
              that the appropriately marked jacket, folder, or covering
              remains with the associated radiograph or x-ray.

    m.   File Folders and Other Containers.  When not in approved security
         containers, file folders and other items containing classified
         documents shall be marked to indicate conspicuously the highest
         classification level of any classified matter included.

    n.   Transmittal Documents.  The first page of a transmittal document
         shall be marked with the highest level of classified information
         being transmitted, and with an appropriate notation to indicate its
         classification when the enclosures are removed.  Additional
         markings (including category if RD or FRD) from the enclosure shall
         be included on transmittal documents when they convey restrictions.

    o.   Working Papers and Drafts.  Classified working papers and drafts
         are considered to be interim production stages toward the
         generation of a permanent document.  Working papers need only
         contain the following markings:

         (1)  Date when created;

         (2)  Highest classification level (and category if RD or FRD) of
              any information contained therein;

         (3)  Those prescribed for a finished document of the same
              classification when:

              (a)  Released by the originator outside the activity,

              (b)  Retained for more than 180 days from the date of origin,
                   or

              (c)  Filed permanently.

    p.   Miscellaneous.  Typewriter ribbon cartridges and spools or carbons
         must be marked with the appropriate classification level and
         protected accordingly until destroyed.  No additional markings are
         required.

    q.   Other Agency and Foreign Government Documents Not Conforming to DOE
         Requirements.  Documents received from other agencies and foreign
         governments not marked to conform to DOE requirements need not be
         remarked.  However, as a minimum, all documents received must
         indicate a classification level (and category if RD or FRD).

    r.   Cover Sheets.  The Standard Form (SF) cover sheet shall be applied
         to classified documents when removed from a security container.
         Contractors may use locally developed cover sheets of the same
         color and format as the standard forms.  SF 703 is the TOP SECRET
         cover sheet, SF 704 is the SECRET cover sheet, and SF 705 is the
         CONFIDENTIAL cover sheet.  In lieu of standard forms, a National
         Security Council cover sheet shall be affixed to each copy of a
         document containing classified National Security Council
         information.

5.  ACCOUNTABILITY AND CONTROL SYSTEMS.

    a.   General.  Departmental Elements and covered contractors shall
         establish control systems to prevent unauthorized access to
         classified information.  Accountability systems provide a system of
         procedures which provide an audit trail.  Accountable matter
         includes TOP SECRET matter, SECRET matter that is maintained (e.g.,
         used, processed, stored) outside of Limited Areas, Exclusion Areas,
         or Protected Areas, and any matter that requires accountability by
         National, International, or programmatic requirements.

    b.   Control Stations.  Departmental Elements and covered contractors
         shall establish control stations to maintain records and control
         classified matter received by and/or dispatched from their
         facilities.  Employees must be designated and trained to operate
         these control station(s) and the employees shall have access
         authorizations commensurate with the level of their classified
         control responsibilities.  TOP SECRET Control Officers shall
         function as control stations for TOP SECRET matter.

    c.   Top Secret Access Records.  An up-to-date record (i.e., DOE Form
         5635.4, "Top Secret Access Sheet") shall be maintained of all
         persons who are authorized access (including visual or aural
         access) to TOP SECRET information.  The record shall identify the
         item of TOP SECRET matter, show the name of each individual given
         access, and the date (or inclusive dates) of access.  For employees
         whose duties require knowledge of the combination of containers
         holding TOP SECRET matter, the SF 700 is the only access record
         that needs to be retained for the combination.

    d.   Accountability Records.  Control station operators shall maintain
         accountability systems for accountable matter.  As a minimum
         accountability records shall indicate for each accountable item:

         (1)  Date of the matter;

         (2)  Originating activity;

         (3)  Activity from which the matter was received, if applicable;

         (4)  Date of receipt, if applicable;

         (5)  Classification level (and category if RD or FRD), and
              additional handling caveats, if any, of the matter;

         (6)  Brief, unclassified description of the matter;

         (7)  Unique identification number;

         (8)  Number of copies of documents generated or reproduced; and

         (9)  Disposition (for example:  destruction, downgrading,
              declassification or dispatch outside the facility, or
              incorporation in another accountability record) of the matter
              and the date.

         (10) Contract or other written retention authority that authorizes
              the matter to be in the possession of a contractor, which
              should be readily available to facilitate compliance
              disposition reviews.

    e.   Inventory.  An annual inventory of accountable matter shall be
         conducted.  Each item listed in an accountability record must be
         visually verified and the contents of all containers authorized for
         storage of classified matter examined to ensure that all
         accountable matter has been entered into the accountability system.
         A report of unresolved discrepancies shall be submitted in
         accordance with DOE 5639.1.

    f.   Records Disposition.  Records maintained to control and account for
         classified matter, including those reflecting receipt, dispatch,
         and destruction, shall be retained in accordance with DOE 1324.2A,
         and the National Archives Records Administration's General Records
         Schedules.

    g.   Working Papers and Drafts.  Classified working papers and drafts
         are considered to be interim production stages toward the
         generation of a permanent document.  Working papers shall be:

         (1)  Protected in accordance with the assigned classification;

         (2)  Destroyed when no longer needed; and

         (3)  Accounted for (if required) and controlled in the manner
              prescribed for a finished document of the same classification
              when:

              (a)  Released by the originator outside the activity,

              (b)  Retained for more than 180 days from the date of origin,
                   or

              (c)  Filed permanently.

    h.   Automated Information System Media.

         (1)  Removable storage media that contains accountable classified
              information shall be entered into accountability in the same
              manner as working papers and drafts.  Appropriate data
              regarding the existence of accountable fixed media shall be
              identified in the security plan and maintained with the system
              documentation.  Accountability is not required for storage
              media that contains non-accountable classified information.

         (2)  Accountability is not required for individual files/documents
              contained on storage media regardless of the classification
              level involved.  Contractors, however, must maintain a system
              identifying the contracting activity, the classified contract,
              and a general description of the TOP SECRET information
              contained on the storage media in the event of loss or
              compromise.  This requirement may be accomplished through
              maintaining current back-up copies of the information,
              generating a directory listing/index of the classified files,
              or documenting the classified files accessed in the security
              operation log.

6.  REPRODUCTION.

    a.   General.

         (1)  Documents may contain markings that limit reproduction without
              the specific, written approval of the originator.

         (2)  Departmental Elements and contractors shall establish local
              controls for the reproduction of classified documents.
              Reproduction of classified documents shall be limited to the
              minimum number of copies consistent with operational
              requirements and any further reproduction limitations shown on
              the document.

         (3)  Reproduced copies are subject to the same protection and
              control requirements as the original.

         (4)  Reproduction restrictions shall not restrict the reproduction
              of documents to facilitate review for declassification.
              However, after such reviews, reproduced documents remaining
              classified must be destroyed in accordance with page III-22,
              paragraph 9.

    b.   Top Secret.  Only TOP SECRET Control Officers may reproduce TOP
         SECRET documents.  TOP SECRET matter shall not be reproduced or
         photographed without written authorization.  However, an approved
         contract which requires generation or reproduction of TOP SECRET
         matter will satisfy this requirement, and additional authorization
         will not be required.

    c.   Secret and Confidential. Unless specifically prohibited, SECRET and
         CONFIDENTIAL documents may be reproduced without the permission of
         the originator.  Documents shall only be reproduced in the
         performance of official and contractual duties.

    d.   Equipment.  Classified documents shall be reproduced on equipment
         specifically designated for such purpose.  To the greatest extent
         possible these machines shall be located within Limited Areas,
         Protected Areas, or Exclusion Areas.

    e.   Mailing Lists.  When graphic arts facilities receive standard
         mailing or distribution lists for the purpose of mailing reproduced
         classified documents, either the appropriate Departmental Element
         or the prime contractor is responsible for verifying the
         need-to-know, facility approval, and protection capability of the
         intended recipients of the documents.  If this requirement and
         appropriate instructions have been levied on the graphic arts
         facility in the contract or subcontract, additional verification is
         not necessary.  Any changes in the standard mailing list are also
         the responsibility of DOE or the prime contractor.

7.  RECEIPT AND TRANSMISSION

    a.   General.  Classified matter may only be transmitted in the
         performance of official and contractual duties.  Unless the
         transmission is required by the specific terms of the contract or
         required for performance of the contract, written authorization of
         the contracting Departmental Element is required prior to
         contractors transmitting classified matter outside a facility.

    b.   Receiving.  When classified matter is received at a facility, the
         following controls shall apply.

         (1)  Classified matter shall be delivered unopened to personnel
              designated to receive it at a control station(s) or TOP SECRET
              Control Officer.  In addition, procedures shall be established
              to ensure that authorized personnel deliver such mail to the
              control station(s) with the inner container unopened, when
              U.S. Registered Mail, U.S. Express Mail, U.S. Certified Mail,
              or classified matter delivered by messenger is not received
              directly by the designated control station personnel.

         (2)  The package shall be examined for any evidence of tampering,
              and the classified contents checked against the receipt.
              Evidence of tampering shall be reported promptly to the
              cognizant DOE security office.  If the matter was received
              through the U.S. Postal System, the appropriate U.S. Postal
              Inspector shall also be promptly notified.  Discrepancies in
              the contents of a package shall be immediately reported to the
              sender.  If the shipment is in order, the receipt shall be
              signed and returned to the sender.

    c.   Packaging.  Classified matter to be transmitted outside a facility
         shall be double-wrapped (enclosed in opaque inner and outer
         containers) except as specified below.

         (1)  When envelopes are used for packaging, the classified
              information shall be protected from direct contact with the
              inner envelope by a cover sheet.  The inner envelope shall be
              sealed and marked with the receiver's and the sender's
              classified mailing addresses, the highest classification of
              the contents and any appropriate caveats.  The outer envelope
              shall be marked with the receiver's and the sender's
              classified mailing addresses.  No markings or notations shall
              be made indicating that the contents are classified.

         (2)  If the item is of a size, bulk, weight, or nature precluding
              the use of envelopes for packaging, other containers of
              sufficient strength and durability shall be used to protect
              the item while in transit.  To prevent items from breaking out
              and facilitate the detection of tampering, seals, puncture
              resistant material, wire mesh, or other knife-slash resistant
              material shall be used for packaging.  As long as the item is
              enclosed in a double container, the matter may be wrapped or
              boxed in paper, wood, metal, or a combination thereof.  The
              inner package shall be addressed to a classified mailing
              address, return addressed to a classified mailing address, and
              marked with the highest classification of the contents and any
              appropriate caveats.  The outer container shall be addressed
              to a classified mailing address, return addressed to a
              classified mailing address, and sealed with no markings to
              indicate that the contents are classified.

         (3)  If the classified matter is an internal component of a
              packaged item of equipment with an outside shell or body which
              is unclassified and completely shields the classified internal
              component from view, the shell or body may be considered as
              the inner container.  The shell or body shall be marked with
              the classification of the equipment but the address and return
              address may be omitted.  The outer container shall be
              addressed to a classified mailing address, return addressed to
              a classified mailing address, and sealed with no markings or
              notations to indicate that the contents are classified.

         (4)  If the classified matter is an inaccessible internal component
              of a bulky item of equipment that can not be reasonably
              packaged, such as a missile, no inner container is required
              and the outside shell or body may be considered as the outer
              container, if it is unclassified.  If the shell or body is
              classified, the matter shall be draped with an opaque covering
              that will conceal all classified features.  The covering must
              be capable of being secured to prevent inadvertent exposure of
              the item.

         (5)  If specialized shipping containers, including closed cargo
              transporters, are used for transmitting classified matter, the
              container may be considered as the outer container.  The
              address may be omitted from the inner and outer container for
              shipments in full truckload lots, when such an exception is
              contained in the provisions of the contract.  Under no
              circumstances will the outer container, or the shipping
              document attached to the outer container, reflect the
              classification of the contents or the fact that the contents
              are classified.

         (6)  If a locked briefcase is used to hand-carry classified matter,
              the briefcase may serve as the outer container.  The inner
              container shall be addressed, return addressed, and marked
              with the highest classification of the contents and with any
              appropriate caveats.  The briefcase (outer container) must
              indicate the return classified mailing address and shall
              contain no markings to indicate that the contents are
              classified.  A briefcase may not serve as the outer container
              when travelling aboard commercial aircraft.

    d.   Receipts.  For all accountable and all SECRET matter, DOE F 5635.3,
         "Classified Document Receipt," or a receipt comparable in content,
         shall be used for the transmittal of classified matter outside of
         facilities.  Receipts shall identify the classified contents and
         the name and address of both the sending and receiving facilities.
         Receipts shall not contain classified information.  The receipt
         shall be placed inside the inner container.  If not practical, the
         receipt may be sent to the recipient with the required advance
         notification of shipment or it may be hand-carried.

         (1)  Exceptions.  With the exception of accountable matter,
              receipts are not required for:

              (a)  transmission within a facility;

              (b)  hand-carrying of matter; and

              (c)  transmittal of CONFIDENTIAL matter.

         (2)  Top Secret.  Transmittal of TOP SECRET matter shall be
              controlled by a continuous receipt system, both inside and
              outside the facility.  DOE F 1540.2, "Courier Receipt" shall
              be used by the TOP SECRET Control Officer when TOP SECRET
              matter is transmitted by a courier.

         (3)  Suspense Copy.  A duplicate copy of receipts shall be
              maintained in a suspense file at the control station until the
              signed receipt is returned.  A suspense date (normally not to
              exceed 30 days) shall be established, and followup action
              shall be initiated if the signed receipt, or similar written
              confirmation, is not returned within the suspense period.  If
              the followup action is unsuccessful, an inquiry shall be
              conducted and the possible loss of the matter shall be
              reported in accordance with DOE 5639.1.  Copies of signed
              receipts for classified matter shall be retained at control
              stations in accordance with DOE 1324.2A, and the National
              Archives and Records Administration's General Records
              Schedules.

    e.   Classified Mailing Address.  Classified matter shall be addressed
         only to classified mailing addresses.  Classified mailing addresses
         must be verified through the Safeguards and Security Information
         Management System.  Office code letters, numbers, or phrases shall
         be used in an attention line for internal routing.  When classified
         matter must be sent to individuals operating at a cleared facility,
         engaged as a consultant, or to any facility at which only one
         employee is assigned, the outer container shall specify:

                        TO BE OPENED BY ADDRESSEE ONLY
                        POSTMASTER -- DO NOT FORWARD
                        IF UNDELIVERABLE TO ADDRESSEE,
                              RETURN TO SENDER

         Mail addressed in this manner shall be delivered only to the
         addressee or to an agent the addressee has authorized in writing to
         receive such mail.  Only personnel having an appropriate access
         authorization may be designated as agents for the addressee.

    f.   Within Facilities.  Classified matter transmitted within a facility
         shall be prepared in a manner that ensures adequate security
         protection for the classification involved and the method of
         transmission.  Double-wrapping is not required; however, in all
         cases, measures shall be taken to protect against unauthorized
         disclosure.  The matter may be transmitted by:

         (1)  Personnel having an appropriate access authorization for the
              level and category of classified information involved; or

         (2)  Approved electrical means.

    g.   Top Secret Outside of Facilities.

         (1)  Individuals may be authorized to hand-carry TOP SECRET in
              accordance with page III-17, paragraph 7j.

         (2)  When authorized by the Director of Safeguards and Security,
              TOP SECRET may also be transmitted by the Defense Courier
              Service, or Department of State Courier System.

         (3)  TOP SECRET may be transmitted over approved communications
              networks.  See DOE 5300.3D, TELECOMMUNICATIONS:
              COMMUNICATIONS SECURITY, for secure communications
              requirements.

         (4)  Outside the U.S., provided that the means of transportation is
              under United States military control or under United States
              registry, matter may be transmitted in the custody of a
              cleared individual, who is authorized and specifically
              approved by a responsible Department of Energy authority for
              safeguards and security.  Written authorization from
              Headquarters, Office of Safeguards and Security, must be
              obtained prior to hand-carrying TOP SECRET outside of the U.S.

    h.   Secret Outside of Facilities.

         (1)  SECRET matter may be transmitted by any method approved for
              the transmission of TOP SECRET matter.

              services:

              (a)  United States Postal Service registered mail, and U.S.
                   Postal Service Express Mail within and between the 50
                   States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.  The
                   Waiver of Signature and Indemnity Block of the U.S.
                   Postal Service Express Mail label 11-B may not be
                   executed and the use of external (street side) express
                   mail collection boxes is prohibited.

              (b)  United States Postal Service registered mail through
                   Army, Navy, or Air Force Postal Service facilities,
                   provided that the approval of Headquarters Office of
                   Safeguards and Security is obtained and information does
                   not pass out of U.S.-citizen control and does not pass
                   through a foreign postal system.  This method may be used
                   in transmitting SECRET matter to and from U.S. Government
                   or U.S. Government contractor employees or members of the
                   U.S. armed forces in a foreign country.

              (c)  Canadian registered mail with registered mail receipt in

                   50 States, the District of Columbia, and Canada.

         (3)  Commercial express service organizations may be used for the
              transmission of SECRET matter in accordance with the
              provisions contained in paragraph 7m, below.

    i.   Confidential Outside of Facilities.

         (1)  CONFIDENTIAL matter may be transmitted by any method approved
              for the transmission of SECRET matter.

         (2)  U.S. Postal Service Certified within the 50 States, the
              District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and U.S. territories or
              possessions.

    j.   Authorized Hand-carriers and Escorts.  Employees having an
         appropriate access authorization may be designated to hand-carry or
         escort classified matter.  Hand-carrying classified matter for the
         purpose of a meeting or visit outside a facility shall be
         authorized only after a determination has been made that:  (i) an
         unusual situation warrants such action; (ii) the classified matter
         is not available at the destination; (iii) the time does not permit
         transmission by other authorized methods; (iv) the classified
         matter can be properly handled and protected during transmission;
         and (v) the transmission can be successfully completed on the same
         day and the classified matter can be appropriately stored upon
         arrival.  Only the classified matter absolutely essential for the
         purpose of the visit or meeting may be hand-carried by the
         employee.

         (1)  The authorized individual shall have an access authorization
              commensurate with the level of the information involved.

         (2)  The removal of classified matter from approved facilities to
              private residences or other unapproved places (e.g., hotel or
              motel rooms) is prohibited.  Therefore, travelers anticipating
              a destination arrival time outside normal duty hours shall
              make prior arrangements for storage of classified matter
              through the host security office.  All classified matter, when
              not in the possession of authorized individuals, shall be
              stored only in approved facilities.

         (3)  A responsible facility official shall brief a hand-carrier who
              does not routinely act as an authorized individual on the
              responsibilities to protect classified information.

         (4)  The authorized individual shall retain the classified matter
              in their possession at all times.  Arrangements shall be made
              in advance of departure for overnight storage at an approved
              facility that has appropriate storage capability.

         (5)  When escorting shipments of classified matter via rail,
              individuals shall travel in an escort car accompanying the
              shipment, keeping the shipment car(s) under observation.  When
              practicable and time permits, individuals shall detrain at
              stops to watch the shipment car(s) and check car(s) or
              container locks and seals.  In addition, individuals shall
              maintain liaison with train crews, other railroad personnel,
              special police, and law enforcement agencies, as appropriate.

         (6)  When escorting shipments of classified matter via motor
              vehicle, individuals shall maintain continuous vigilance for
              the presence of conditions or situations that might threaten
              the security of the cargo, and take appropriate action as
              circumstances might require to avoid interference with the
              continuous safe passage of the vehicle.  In addition,
              individuals shall check seals and locks at each stop when time
              permits, and observe vehicles and adjacent areas during stops
              or layovers.

         (7)  When escorting shipments of classified matter by means of
              commercial or military aircraft, individuals shall provide
              continuous observation of plane and cargo during ground stops
              and of cargo during loading and unloading operations.

         (8)  Employees authorized to hand-carry classified matter aboard
              commercial passenger aircraft shall follow procedures
              established in FAA circular 108-3 and be briefed on their
              overall responsibility to safeguard the classified matter and
              on established procedures.

    k.   Commercial Express Service Organizations.  The use of commercial
         express delivery service for transmitting classified matter is
         restricted to emergency situations where the information positively
         has to be at the receiving facility(ies) on the next working day.
         Commercial express service shall not be used as a matter of routine
         or convenience for transmitting classified matter.  As a minimum,
         the sender shall ensure that:

         (1)  The express service organization has been approved for the
              shipping and receiving locations.  Approval shall be
              accomplished by use of DOE F 5600.2, "Facility Data and
              Approval Record."

         (2)  The transmittal address is correct and, in some instances, the
              appropriate, special facility handling instructions are used
              for such service.

         (3)  The intended recipient(s) is notified of the proposed shipment
              and arrival date.

         (4)  The properly wrapped package is hand-carried to the express
              mail dispatch center in sufficient time to allow for dispatch
              on the same day.

         (5)  Since express terminals as a matter of policy are not approved
              for storage of classified matter, overnight service is not
              used on Fridays or on the day preceding a holiday unless prior
              assurance has been received from the intended recipient that
              someone will be available at the facility(ies) to receive the
              shipment on arrival.

    l.   Common Carrier Shipments.  The following classes of common carrier
         services may be utilized upon approval by the cognizant local
         safeguards and security authority, including:

         (1)  Motor carriers in exclusive use that provide locked and sealed
              van service.

         (2)  Locked and sealed railroad car, provided the carrier shall
              furnish a report on request identifying the car location.

         (3)  Air carriers providing prompt tracking and special signature
              services.

         (4)  Commercial messenger services engaged in the intracity/local
              area delivery (same day delivery only) of classified matter
              between cleared facilities and to the U.S. Post Office.

         (5)  Rail, truck, or air without escort, or special protective
              services, when size and weight together preclude removal
              without the aid of mechanical devices, and when the containers
              are securely banded, sealed, and otherwise fastened so as to
              readily reveal any attempted opening or unauthorized access.

    m.   Additional Requirements.  Shipments of classified matter, including
         bulk document shipments, are subject to the following conditions,
         unless more stringent requirements are imposed elsewhere:

         (1)  Contents shall be securely packaged and shall meet applicable
              regulations (including those of the Department of
              Transportation).

         (2)  Seals or other positive fastening devices shall be used on
              shipping vehicles and containers, and be placed in a manner to
              show evidence of tampering.  The type of seal to be used is to
              be determined by local safeguards and security authority.
              Seals shall have serial numbers.  Seal identification shall be
              entered on bills of lading or other shipping papers.  Seal
              numbers shall be verified by the consignee upon arrival of a
              shipment.

              (a)  General Services Administration-approved combination
                   padlocks shall be used to secure closed cargo areas of
                   vehicles, vans, and railroad cars.

              (b)  Shipments of SECRET or CONFIDENTIAL matter received at
                   common carrier terminals shall be picked up by the
                   consignee during the same working day, unless the carrier
                   provides continuous protective service to the address of
                   the consignee under locally approved procedures.

              (c)  Unescorted shipments by rail or truck (e.g., truckload or
                   carload) shall be made under arrangements with carriers
                   to provide in-transit reports as needed.  The carrier
                   shall provide immediate notice concerning any serious
                   delay of the shipment.

         (3)  Assurances and Notifications.

              (a)  Carrier must be approved according to DOE 5634.1B.

              (b)  Notification of shipments shall be transmitted prior to
                   departure either to the consignee or to the Departmental
                   Element exercising administrative jurisdiction over the
                   consignee, with sufficient time and information to enable
                   proper handling at the destination.  As a minimum, the
                   notification shall include the nature of the shipment,
                   means of shipment, number of seals, anticipated time and
                   date of arrival, and requested notification if not
                   received by a specified time.

              (c)  The consignee shall advise the consignor of any shipment
                   not received within 48 hours after the estimated time of
                   arrival furnished by the consignor or transshipping
                   activities personnel.  Upon receipt of such notice, the
                   consignor shall immediately initiate tracing of the
                   shipment.

         (4)  Protective Measures.  Protective measures for Departmental
              security shipments are as follows:

              (a)  Appropriately authorized and cleared personnel,
                   designated by name or title and given written authority
                   by the responsible manager, may hand-carry, transport, or
                   escort classified matter.  Sufficient personnel shall be
                   tasked for a specific movement assignment to ensure
                   continuous protection of the matter being transported.

              (b)  Use of rail, truck, air, and other modes of
                   transportation  shall be based on protection meeting the
                   requirements outlined in subparagraphs 1, and 2 below.

                   1    As a minimum, the common carrier or other service
                        shall be required to provide the following security
                        services:

                        a    Surveillance by an authorized carrier employee
                             when the classified matter is outside the
                             vehicle.

                        b    A tracking system that ensures prompt tracing
                             of the shipment while en route.

                        c    When storage is required, classified matter
                             shall be stored in an alarmed or guarded
                             storage area with immediate response by a
                             carrier employee, commercial guard, or police
                             officer.

                   2    Verification shall be made of the identity and
                        authorization of person(s) who pick up the
                        classified matter.

8.  CONTRACT CLOSEOUT/FACILITY TERMINATION

    a.   General.  Classified matter received or generated in the
         performance of a classified contract shall be returned to DOE on
         completion of the contract unless the matter has been declassified,
         destroyed, or retention is authorized.

    b.   Contract Completion.  Within 120 days after completion or
         termination of a contract, the contractor must submit, to the
         Contracting Officer, either a certification of non-possession or a
         certification of possession.  The Contracting Officer shall then
         transmit the certifications to the cognizant security office.

    c.   Certification of Non-possession.

         (1)  Upon return or destruction of all classified matter pertaining
              to a contract, the contractor shall submit a certification of
              non-possession.  The certification must include the contract
              number and a statement that all classified matter has been
              returned or destroyed.

         (2)  When a Departmental Element's facility approval is to be
              terminated, a certificate of non-possession must be completed
              as part of the facility termination process.

    d.   Certification of Possession.

         (1)  Requests to retain classified shall indicate the benefit to
              DOE and the intended use of the information.  Certifications
              must specifically identify each piece of TOP SECRET matter and
              identify SECRET and CONFIDENTIAL matter by subject matter, the
              type or form, and the quantity of matter.

         (2)  If the classified matter will aid the U.S. Government in
              performing another active contract and the matter is being
              transferred to the active contract, a copy of the retention
              notification shall be provided to the Departmental Element or
              the other Government agency holding the contract.  If the
              contractor is not notified to the contrary, the matter may be
              transferred and will fall under the jurisdiction of the
              gaining contract.

         (3)  When a certification of possession is submitted, the
              contractor may maintain the classified matter for 2 years
              unless notified to the contrary by the appropriate
              Departmental Element.

    e.   Termination of Facility Approval.  Notwithstanding the provisions
         for retention outlined above, if a facility approval is terminated
         for any reason, classified matter in the facility's possession
         shall be returned to DOE or disposed of in accordance with
         instructions from the Departmental Element.

9.  DESTRUCTION

    a.   General.  Departmental Elements and contractors shall establish
         procedures for an ongoing review of their classified holdings to
         reduce their classified inventory to the minimum necessary.
         Multiple copies, obsolete matter, and classified waste shall be
         destroyed as soon as practical.  Classified matter shall be
         destroyed in accordance with records disposition schedules,
         including the National Archives and Records Administration General
         Records Schedules.

    b.   Methods.  Classified matter shall be destroyed beyond recognition
         to preclude reconstruction.  Destruction can be accomplished by
         burning, shredding, pulping, melting, mutilation, chemical
         decomposition, or pulverizing.  Other approved methods such as
         disintegration, shredding, or burning shall be used to destroy
         paper products, as well as non-paper material such as mylar.
         Classified microforms may be destroyed by burning, chemical
         decomposition, disintegration, or other methods approved by the
         Departmental Element.  The following additional requirements must
         be satisfied when classified matter is destroyed.

         (1)  The Departmental Element must approve public destruction
              facilities or any other alternative procedures (e.g., burying
              or disassembly).

         (2)  Classified matter shall be destroyed on the same day it is
              removed from the facility.  A record of dispatch is not
              required unless custody of the matter is released to another
              contractor or a Government Agency.

         (3)  Ash residue produced by burning must be examined and reduced
              by physical disturbance to ensure that the matter is
              completely destroyed and no unburned matter remains.

    c.   Equipment.  Classified matter shall be destroyed by equipment which
         has been approved by the cognizant security office.  The residue
         output shall be inspected each time destruction is effected to
         ensure that established requirements are met.

         (1)  Crosscut shredders which produce residue particle size not
              exceeding 1/32 of an inch in width by 1/2 inch in length, may
              be used for destruction of classified paper and non-paper
              products, except microforms.

         (2)  Pulping equipment shall be equipped with security screens with
              perforations of 1/4 inch or smaller.

         (3)  Pulverizing equipment shall be outfitted with security screens
              that meet these specifications:

              (a)  Hammer mills - the perforations shall not exceed 3/16
                   inch in diameter.

              (b)  Choppers and hybridized disintegrators -the perforations
                   shall not exceed 3/32 inch in diameter.

         NOTE:  When self-processing film or paper is used to photograph or
         reproduce classified information, all parts of the last exposure
         shall be removed from the camera and destroyed as classified waste,
         or the camera shall be protected at the classification level (and
         category if RD or FRD) of information contained on the media.

    d.   Witnesses.

         (1)  The destruction of classified matter shall be accomplished by
              individuals having appropriate access authorization
              commensurate to the classification of matter to be destroyed.

         (2)  The destruction of SECRET or CONFIDENTIAL may be accomplished
              by one individual.  The destruction of TOP SECRET matter shall
              be witnessed by an appropriately cleared individual other than
              the person destroying the matter.  Facilities with only one
              employee having the appropriate access authorization shall
              contact their Departmental Element's security organization for
              guidance on destruction.

    e.   Records of Destruction.

         (1)  Accountable Matter.  Destruction of accountable classified
              matter must be documented by using DOE F 5635.9, "Record of
              Destruction", which shall be signed by the individual
              destroying the matter.  An audit trail must be maintained
              until destruction.

         (2)  TOP SECRET.  When TOP SECRET matter is destroyed, a DOE F
              5635.9 shall be executed indicating the date of destruction
              and identifying the matter destroyed.  The certificate shall
              be signed by the individual designated to destroy the matter
              and the witness to the destruction.

         (3)  Disposition of Records.   DOE F 5635.9 must be maintained in
              accordance with DOE 1324.2A, and the National Archives Records
              Administration's General Records Schedules.

    f.   Waste.  Classified waste shall be destroyed by approved methods as
         soon as practical.  Receptacles utilized to accumulate classified
         waste shall be clearly marked to indicate its purpose.  Pending
         destruction, classified waste and receptacles shall be protected as
         required for the level of classified matter involved.
