Nuclear Safety: Software Quality Assurance
Welcome to the Department of Energy's Office of Health, Safety and Security (HSS) Software Quality Assurance (SQA) homepage. The purpose of this Web site is to promote continuous improvement and the sharing of knowledge of safety software quality assurance among interested parties across the DOE complex. It consolidates information and contains links to subject matter experts, procedures, training material, program descriptions, good practices, lessons learned and the Central Registry Toolbox Codes.
The Portal also provides capabilities for member collaboration in product development and threaded discussions.
- Central Registry: The Central Registry provides a library of DOE "Toolbox" Codes covering site boundary accident dose consequences, fire accident source terms, leakpath factors, chemical release/dispersion and consequence, and radiological dispersion and consequence.
- Safety Software Communication Forum (SSCF): The SSCF provides the DOE community with an electronic forum for software users and others to interact and communicate information about various safety software, including safety analysis and design software, in use at various sites within the DOE complex.
Assessments and CRADS: This
section contains the Criteria Review and
Approach Documents being utilized to assess
nuclear safety software at DOE facilities.
It includes site reports received and lessons
learned from conducting the assessments.
This site contains SQA training information
that will ensure that DOE personnel possess
and maintain the appropriate level of competency
required for their SQA related positions.
- SQA Directives: This section contains links to DOE O 414.1D, "Quality Assurance" and DOE G 414.1-1, "Safety Software Guide for use with 10 CFR 830 Subpart A, Quality Assurance Requirements, and DOE O 414.1C, Quality Assurance".
Learned: The lessons learned
feature of the SQA Knowledge Portal is established
to promote the sharing of knowledge across
the DOE complex with specific emphasis on
lessons learned relevant to SQA.
Library: This section of the webpage
contains SQA program documents, reports
and presentations. Links to Web sites related
