Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratory, Albuquerque - North Las
Vegas Facility, Las Vegas, Nevada, and Nevada Test Site, Mercury,
2. HANDLING AND CONTROL OF PARD INFORMATION.
a. Authorization to Use the PARD Designation. Approval by the
Director of Nonproliferation and National Security is required
prior to using the designation of PARD at any site. Authorizations
to use the PARD designation are valid for only 1 year.
b. PARD Protection Requirements. The security measures contained
herein apply only to PARD information as it appears as output.
Within the classified AIS (including communication lines), PARD
information shall be protected consistent with the highest level of
the information in the classified AIS or, at a minimum, at the
Secret-Restricted Data level. To ensure against abuse of the
policy, the CSSM shall conduct periodic and selective reviews of
the material marked by the users as PARD.
c. Determination of Use. The user shall determine the use of the PARD
marking for his/her information. The PARD marking shall only be
used if all the following criteria are met:
(1) A classified AIS output is generated that may contain limited
quantities of classified information that is not readily
recognized as classified or unclassified due to its being
contained in large quantities of unclassified information.
(2) Operational conditions resulting from the large volume of the
documents preclude utilization of certain security measures
applicable to classified information.
(3) The classified AIS output contains a substantial volume with a
low density of potentially classified information.
(4) Examples of classified AIS output that may be committed to
PARD security measures are:
(a) Numerical output from weapon code calculations.
(b) Weapon code programming statements, excluding
documentation of the program, explanatory notes, and
similar clear text material associated with a weapon
(5) PARD information shall be marked as follows:
(a) The classified AIS output shall be conspicuously marked
on each page or sheet with the words "PROTECT AS
RESTRICTED DATA." On output where space does not allow,
the letters "PARD" may be used.
(b) This marking shall be applied at the time of origination
of the classified AIS output (e.g., printouts,
(c) When the "Protect as Restricted Data" marking cannot be
included in a Cathode Ray Tube display, the marking shall
be affixed to the Cathode Ray Tube.
(d) All PARD output shall show the date of origination.
(6) PARD information shall be generated and used only in a DOE
Limited Area wherein all assigned personnel have been cleared
to the accreditation level of classified information approved
for the classified AIS.
(7) PARD classified AIS output when not in use shall be stored
within a Security Area in a manner consistent with at least
one of the following:
(a) In a manner authorized for Secret documents (DOE
(b) In a secure storage container or filing cabinet equipped
with a locking device; or
(c) When the volume is so large it becomes operationally
necessary, PARD matter may be stored, at a minimum,
within a security area where it is administratively
controlled during workhours and maintained under locked
conditions during nonworkhours.
(8) PARD classified AIS output shall be destroyed in the same
manner as classified documents. Physical destruction shall be
accomplished in compliance with DOE 5635.1A.
(9) PARD data/information shall be transferred as follows:
(a) The PARD document(s) to be transferred from the site in
which it was originated to another site shall be reviewed
for classification (DOE 5650.2B, IDENTIFICATION OF
CLASSIFIED INFORMATION) marked accordingly and, if
classified, marked, handled, protected, and transferred
as other classified documents (DOE 5635.1A).
(b) PARD documents may be electronically transmitted between
sites authorized to originate and use PARD without such
classification review. However, the data shall be
protected at the accreditation level of the classified
AIS on which it was produced.
(c) The transfer of PARD documents between points within a
Security Area shall be made in the personal custody of Q
cleared personnel or other appropriately cleared person
approved by the DAA.
(d) PARD documents transferred between Security Areas located
at the same site shall be in the personal custody of a Q
cleared person or other appropriately cleared person
approved by the DAA. The PARD documents shall be
double-wrapped with only the inner wrap marked with
"Protect as Restricted Data" marking. Both the inner
wrapping and the outer wrapping shall contain the
classified address of the person to whom the matter is to
be delivered. Large quantities of PARD documents may be
transferred in locked substantial containers, such as a
brief case, in lieu of the outer wrapper. The case or
container shall bear the dispatcher's or recipient's name
(e) The CSSM at each site approved for the use of PARD
documents shall ensure proper control and use of PARD
documents by ensuring that each user is thoroughly aware
of the special security measures necessary for the
handling of PARD information. The CSSM shall ensure that
an annual review is conducted to assure that
accumulations of PARD documents are kept to a minimum.
The CSSM shall ensure that unnecessary documents are
destroyed without delay.
