Property: Special Classifications
What Is Other Accountable, Sensitive and High Risk Property?
There are certain classifications of property at Jefferson Lab that are of special interest to the Department of Energy. Specifically:
Other Accountable - 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:
Sensitive Property - is all Precious metals. The US DOE considers Precious Metals as: pure Gold, Silver, Platinum, Palladium, Rhodium, Iridium, Ruthenium & Osmium
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:
- High speed pulse generators
- High-power direct current power supplies
- Extremely high precision machine tools
- Electronic streak cameras
- High performance vacuum pumps and pressure transducers
- Very high tensile strength steel and Aluminum
- Radioactive calibration sources

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
