Property: Sensitive

What Is Sensitive and High Risk Property?

These are two classifications of property at Jefferson Lab that are of special interest to the Department of Energy. Specifically:

Sensitive Property - Items, regardless of value, that require extra control and accountability because of susceptibility to unusual rates of loss, theft, misuse, or due to information security, export control, and other factors. This includes but is not limited to the following:

  • Portable air compressors
  • Audio visual equipment
  • Laboratory balances
  • Bicycles
  • Cameras
  • Portable electrical generators
  • Global positioning systems
  • Survey equipment
  • Laboratory test equipment
  • Microscopes
  • Network servers, hard drives, PDAs, laptops
  • Personal Computers: both workstations and PCs imbedded as components of larger assemblies
  • Scanners
  • Power tools
  • Two-way radios
  • Precious metals: gold, silver, platinum, rhodium, iridium, palladium, osmium, ruthenium and alloys of these metals

High Risk Property - Equipment and technical information subject to International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)1 nuclear proliferation restrictions or federal export control regulations. Also, any property regulated as a hazardous material under federal worker safety or environmental regulations. Some examples of high risk property are:

1 IAEA publishes two lists of restricted nuclear or biological related equipment and material. The first is a list of items designed for weapon or "enrichment" applications — commonly called the "Trigger List". The second list is equipment or material which may be used in weapons research or production but also in fundamental research — referred to as the "Dual Use List". The technical parameters that define what equipment or material is included on either list are very specific. The lists are published in IAEA Information Circular 254 Revision 4 Part 1 (Trigger) and Part 2 (Dual-Use) March 2000. If your equipment or material is on either list it is classified as High Risk property by the Department of Energy. http://www.iaea.org/Publications/Documents/Infcircs/Numbers/nr251-300.shtml
