    The Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board, authorized by Public 
Law 100-456, is responsible for evaluating the content and 
implementation of the standards relating to the design, construction, 
operation, and decommissioning of defense nuclear facilities of the 
Department of Energy (DOE) (as defined in Public Law 100-456). In 
addition, the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal years 1992 
and 1993 (Public Law 102-190) expanded the Board's jurisdiction to 
include facilities and activities involved with the assembly, 
disassembly, and testing of nuclear weapons, and to approve any DOE 
plans to resume plutonium operations at the Rocky Flats Plant, Golden, 
Colorado. The Board is also responsible for investigating any event or 
practice at a defense nuclear facility which has or may adversely affect 
public health and safety. The Board makes specific recommendations to 
the Secretary of Energy on measures that should be adopted to ensure 
that both public and worker health and safety are adequately protected.
