classified equipment, components, parts, tooling, gauges, liquids, powder, scrap, molds, and packaging container inserts classified documents or electronic media Classified matter is defined as anything in physical form that contains or reveals classified information such as: 11 CLASSIFIED MATTER The protection and control of classified information or matter is critical to national security.
Classified information is defined as any knowledge that can be communicated or documentary material, regardless of its physical form or characteristics, that has been determined pursuant to executive order, regulation or statute to meet classification requirements. 12 CLASSIFIED INFORMATION Do not assume that unmarked documents or casual conversations are not potentially classified. If content is reviewed or discussed that is close to a classified topical area consult with a Derivative Classifier.
Classification is the process of identifying information requiring protection in the interest of national security against unauthorized disclosure and determining the level of importance of that information Original classification is the initial determination that information requires protection as National Security Information under the provisions of Executive Order 13526, Classified National Security Information Derivative classification is the determination that information is, in substance, the same as information currently classified 13 WHAT IS CLASSIFICATION?
Adhering to all CMPC requirements specified in local procedures, plans, and DOE directives Maintaining CMPC training Immediately notifying WEMS Security of any suspected compromise of classified matter or other incidents of security concern (IOSC) Reporting any discovery or suspicion of unauthorized use of surveillance devices to the technical surveillance countermeasures officer (see contact list) Ensuring that all projects or planning associated with classified information or matter are reviewed for concurrence by the organizational Facility Security Officer (FSO) and CMPC program manager and approved by the Officially Designated Security Authority (ODSA) Personnel with security clearances are responsible for the following: Protect classified matter 14 RESPONSIBLITY Each company on site has a designated FSO responsible for administering the requirements of the safeguards and security program.
When a DOE security clearance is granted, individuals sign an SF-312, Classified Information Nondisclosure Agreement before accessing classified matter which states: “…I am obligated to comply with laws and regulations that prohibit the unauthorized disclosure of classified information.” Cleared individuals who violate rules, regulations or orders pertaining to the safeguarding of classified information are subject to a civil penalty and possible criminal prosecution which could result in the issuance of a security infraction or violation that could lead to: the loss of your clearance, the loss of your job, and possible imprisonment 15 NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT I agree not to disclose classified information
The classification officer (CO) is the authority for all classification matters at PORTS and provides the following: Establishing and administering policies, procedures, and programs on classification Training and appointing Derivative Classifiers (DCs) who have expertise, and education in their subject areas Recommending appointment of Derivative Declassifiers (DDs) Performing mandatory review of all information containing technical, scientific, or operational information prior to release to the public, presentation to congress, or widespread distribution 16 CLASSIFICATION OFFICER (CO) Classification reviews
A derivative classifier (DC) is an individual authorized to determine that matter is unclassified or classified as Restricted Data, Formerly Restricted Data, Transclassified Foreign Nuclear Information, or National Security Information. All DCs must: Have a current appointment by the CO based on appropriate technical, scientific, or operational knowledge and experience within a specific subject area Provide guidance to individuals on classified or potentially classified subjects based on appropriate classification guidance criteria Maintain training as provided by the CO 17 DERIVATIVE CLASSIFIER (DC) Derivative classifiers provide guidance only and are not authorized to approve for public release or wide-spread distribution.
Have a current appointment (from DOE) based on having the appropriate technical, scientific, or operational knowledge and experience within a specific subject area, as well as having successfully completed training provided by DOE HQ Prepare a written notice if a document is downgraded or declassified Ensure the declassification of a document is reviewed and agreed upon by a second DD or the CO 18 DERIVATIVE DECLASSIFIER (DD) A derivative declassifier (DD) is an individual authorized to apply the appropriate classification guidance criteria to downgrade or declassify the classification level and category of the matter. The DD’s authority to derivatively declassify documents or matter containing scientific, technical, or operational information is limited to defined subject areas. A DD must: Sample of downgraded document FOR TRAINING ONLY
19 ACCESS TO CLASSIFIED MATTER Access is the ability or opportunity to gain knowledge of classified information. Only personnel who have an appropriate access authorization (security clearance) and need-to-know are permitted access to classified matter: Prior to personnel being granted access to classified information (e.g., access to VTR documents, access to classified computer, etc.), a manager (with a DOE security clearance) must determine the need-to-know and submit (on behalf of the recipient) FSSF-4206, Authorization for Access to Classified Information to WEMS security for final approval Access will not be given solely on the virtue of the individual’s office, position, or security clearance.
20 WHO ESTABLISHES A PERSON’S NEED-TO-KNOW? A need-to-know is a determination made by an authorized holder of classified or unclassified controlled information that a prospective recipient requires access to specific classified or unclassified controlled information in the performance of official or contractual duties Access to classified information (and special nuclear material) at all DOE sites must be predicated upon a valid need-to-know. Have a questioning attitude
Categories of Classified Information Restricted Data Formerly Restricted Data National Security Information Transclassified Foreign Nuclear Information Levels of Classification (listed in descending order of sensitivity) Top Secret Secret Confidential 21 CLASSIFICATION CATEGORIES AND LEVELS
Restricted Data is any information classified under the Atomic Energy Act that concerns: the design, manufacture, or utilization of nuclear weapons the production of special nuclear material the use of special nuclear material in the production of energy 22 RESTRICTED DATA
Formerly Restricted Data is any information classified under the Atomic Energy Act and removed from the RD category through a joint determination by the DOE and the DOD that the information: is related primarily to the military utilization of nuclear weapons and can be adequately safeguarded in a manner similar to NSI 23 FORMERLY RESTRICTED DATA
National Security Information (NSI) is any information that has been determined under Executive Order (E.O.) 13526, or any predecessor E.O. to require protection against unauthorized disclosure and that is marked to indicate its classified status when contained in a document. 24 NATIONAL SECURITY INFORMATION
Transclassified Foreign Nuclear Information (TFNI) is any information concerning the atomic energy programs of other nations that has been removed from the Restricted Data category for use by the intelligence community and is safeguarded as NSI under E.O TRANSCLASSIFIED FOREIGN NUCLEAR INFORMATION
Top Secret information is any information that the unauthorized disclosure of could reasonably be expected to cause exceptionally grave damage to the national security. 26 TOP SECRET Currently PORTS does not contain any classified information at the Top Secret level. Coversheet for TOP SECRET
Secret information is any information that the unauthorized disclosure of could reasonably be expected to cause serious damage to the national security. 27 SECRET Coversheet for SECRET
Confidential information is any information that the unauthorized disclosure of could reasonably be expected to cause damage to national security. 28 CONFIDENTIAL Coversheet for CONFIDENTIAL
This matrix shows the level and category that authorized personnel may access with the appropriate security clearance and need-to-know. 29 WHAT LEVEL AND CATEGORY CAN I ACCESS? RD FRD NSI/ Transclassified Foreign Nuclear Information Top SecretQQQ SecretQQ or L ConfidentialQ or L Secret Restricted Data (SRD or S/RD) requires at a minimum, a Q-clearance.
All personnel generating matter that has the potential to contain classified information must: request classification guidance from a DC prior to beginning the task of creating any documents protect drafts at the highest classification level and category of the subject area until reviewed by a DC If matter is potentially classified all work must be performed on an approved classified computer. See WEMS cyber security for assistance with access to the classified computer. 30 REQUESTING A CLASSIFICATION REVIEW AND DETERMINATION Classified working papers and drafts must be generated on an approved National Security System (NSS) classified computer in accordance with FSS-4116, Use and Administration of Classified Computing Systems.
All working papers (drafts) identified to be associated with classified subject areas must be generated on an authorized classified computer system and handled appropriately. Protect the working paper (even in draft) at the highest potential classification level and category of information that you believe is in the document until a formal review has been conducted by a Derivative Classifier or Classification Officer. Apply appropriate classified coversheets and ensure the actual working paper is marked with the highest potential classification level as well as being marked as “DRAFT” Regardless, the document must be reviewed no later than 180 days after its creation. 31 WORKING PAPERS/DRAFTS Obtain a preliminary determination of the working paper prior to beginning work.
Every employee is encouraged and expected to challenge the classification of information, documents, or material that he or she believes is improperly classified. This includes any classification decision that you believe was made in error. Challenges should be directed to your site Classification Office or classification POC. 32 CHALLENGING CLASSIFICATION DECISIONS Employees are not subject to repercussions for submitting a classification challenge.
Originator identification Date of origin (or revision) Classifier information Classification level Classification category (if RD or FRD) Caveats (if any) Subject or title markings Portion markings (if NSI) Unique ID number (if accountable) Classified matter, regardless of date or agency of origin, must be marked to indicate at least the classification level and category (if RD or FRD). The originator of a document must ensure the document is marked to comply with the DOE marking requirements. Classified documents must be marked with the following elements : 33 PROTECTION AND CONTROL REQUIREMENTS
34 MARKING EXAMPLES Classification Marking Layout for Derivatively Classified NATIONAL SECURITY INFORMATION Documents Classifier marking must be placed on “first page” of the document, whether the cover page, title page, or first page of text and should be placed in the lower left corner. Derivative Declassifier Review Stamp should be close to NSI Classifier Stamp, preferably above it, but as close as possible MARKINGS ARE FOR EXAMPLE PURPOSES ONLY

A coversheet is a paper that is developed to protect classified information from inadvertent disclosure and to alert observers to the classification level in the attached document must be placed on a classified document when it is removed from a repository, vault, or vault-type-room (VTR) and must remain on the document until it is returned to storage The coversheet indicates the highest level of classification contained in the document SF Top Secret SF Secret SF Confidential 43 WHAT IS A COVER SHEET?
Classified documents may only be reproduced on copiers designated for classified reproduction via FSSF-4105, Reproduction Machine Authorization for Duplication of Classified Documents. This form must be posted conspicuously above or attached to the copier. 44 CAN CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS BE REPRODUCED? Classified copiers must be authorized by WEMS security prior to being designated for classified reproduction.
Procedural steps for making classified copies are: Ensure that classified document(s) to be copied contain no caveat markings requiring written approval from the originator Ensure no one in the area is uncleared or lacking the appropriate security clearance Limit copies to the minimum needed. Accountable copies must be processed by WEMS Records Management Document Control (RMDC) Run three blank pages through the copier after copying is complete If two-sided copying ensure all paper trays are inspected for residual classified matter Shred all misfeeds or excess copies in an approved classified shredder Double check the copying area when finished to ensure no classified matter remains 45 REPRODUCTION PROCEDURE All copies of classified matter must be appropriately marked and handled.
Communicating classified information must be done by secure means. This can be accomplished by transmitting via a secure terminal equipment (STE) whether telephonically and/or by facsimile. The recipient of your transmittal must also have similar approved equipment (e.g., STE). Contact the CMPC POC for assistance. 46 HOW CAN CLASSIFIED INFORMATION BE COMMUNICATED?
Any individual who hand carries classified matter must possess the need-to- know and a clearance appropriate to the level and category of matter being transported, be traveling in the course of official company business, and be current in Classified Matter Protection and Control (CMPC) Training, Module This person must: 47 HAND CARRYING CLASSIFIED MATTER continuously maintain classified matter in their possession until appropriately secured in an approved vault, vault-type room (VTR), or General Services Administration (GSA) security container; ensure that only the information absolutely essential for the review or meeting is taken; and do not open or review classified matter outside of an approved security area (e.g., LA, VTR, etc.)
Within a limited area (LA): Personnel may hand carry classified matter inside a LA within a red (designated for Secret) or blue (designated for Confidential) classified mailing envelope or in a red or blue classified file folder marked with the highest classification level contained in the document(s). A blue envelope or folder may not be used for classified matter classified as Secret. An appropriate coversheet must be attached to the document. Outside of the LA: Personnel may hand carry classified matter from one LA to another LA between recognized security areas (i.e., property protection area, general access area, controlled access area) as long as matter is “double-wrapped” (enclosed in opaque material). The following containers/packaging may be used: Sealed Envelopes (prepared commensurate with mailing classified matter) Locked Briefcase/Container Tamper-Indicating Bags/Envelopes 48 HAND CARRYING CLASSIFIED MATTER ONSITE Containers or packaging used for hand carrying classified matter must indicate the classified mailing address of the carrier.
Hand carrying classified matter outside the PORTS reservation is discouraged and shall be authorized only after a determination has been made that: 49 HAND CARRYING CLASSIFIED MATTER OFFSITE An unusual situation warrants such action The classified matter is not available at the destination Time does not permit transmission by other authorized methods The classified matter can be properly handled and protected during transport The transport can be successfully completed during the same day The classified matter can be appropriately stored at the destination FSSF-4107, Authority to Transport Classified Matter Outside PORTS Facilities, must be submitted by your FSO to be approved by the WEMS security manager.
Personnel authorized to hand carry classified matter off-site must adhere to the requirements listed in the hand carry contingency plan. This plan provides contingent measures in the case that emergent issues (e.g., traffic conditions, weather emergencies, unexpected facility closings, etc.) occur that may hinder the successful delivery of classified matter to its intended destination. 50 HAND CARRY CONTINGENCY PLAN Apply common sense when facing emergency circumstances (such as natural disaster, terrorist attack, city evacuation, or any circumstances where appropriate storage or delivery as described above is absolutely not possible) until classified matter is appropriately secured. In such emergencies, keep the WEMS security manager informed, and in all cases, you will be required to provide a report of the incident as soon as you return to PORTS. If you lose or misplace any classified matter, or if it is compromised or possibly compromised, you must report the situation immediately to the WEMS security manager at or If the incident occurs during non-working hours, you must notify, as soon as practical, the PSS at If the incident occurs while you are attending classified meetings at other DOE or government facilities, you should also inform that facility’s security officer or the security officer responsible for the meeting. Contingency steps are: Contact the WEMS security manager and inform him/her of the situation if there will be an unusual delay in delivering classified matter. Contact the CMPC POC at to discuss potential alternatives to secure classified matter.
Classified matter must be appropriately prepared (e.g., marked, double wrapped, sealed, etc.) and processed by WEMS RMDC prior to shipment. WEMS RMDC will ensure that recipient has an approved classified mailing address (CMA). 51 MAILING OR SHIPPING CLASSIFIED MATTER WEMS RMDC will process all external mail commensurate with the steps identified in FSSF- 4120, Mailing & Packaging Classified Documents Off-Site Check sheet. Inner and outer envelopes
Shipments for classified components that cannot be processed by WEMS RMDC due to size or other considerations (e.g., converters, compressors, radioactive waste, etc.) must be handled in accordance with the WEMS security transportation plan. Contact WEMS security at ext to access the security plan. 52 CLASSIFIED SHIPMENTS Preparing for Shipment
Classified matter must be stored within the minimum protection level of an LA as follows: Inside a locked General Services Administration (GSA)-approved security container (repository) that has been approved by WEMS security Inside an approved vault or vault-type-room Authorized (nonconforming) storage areas Nonconforming storage must result in protection effectiveness equivalent to that provided to similar levels and categories of classified matter as approved by the Officially Designated Federal Security Authority (ODFSA) and the cognizant Headquarters program office. Equivalent security measures must be supported by analysis. 53 WHERE CAN CLASSIFIED MATTER BE STORED?
Storing money, firearms, medical items, controlled substances, precious metals, or other items susceptible to theft are prohibited inside a classified repository. 54 INAPPROPRIATE STORAGE
Custodians of classified repositories are responsible for: controlling access to the security repository and the classified matter within getting WEMS security approval before relocating a security repository ensuring compliance with the CMPC requirements identified in FSS/PORTS-4111 notifying WEMS security when an authorized individual needs added as a custodian notifying WEMS security when a custodian no longer requires access (e.g., terminated, transferred, clearance downgraded, etc.) notifying WEMS security if the securing mechanisms of the repository fail notifying WEMS security when the repository is no longer needed 55 CLASSIFIED REPOSITORY RESPONSIBILITIES The combination of a classified repository or VTR is classified information. If you forget your combination contact WEMS security.
Each classified repository shall bear an assigned number on the external portion of the repository Repositories shall not bear any external markings that would indicate the level of classified matter authorized to be stored within the container The level and category of classified matter stored in a classified repository will not be disclosed in s or other forms of unsecured communication 56 IDENTIFYING CLASSIFIED REPOSITORIES
The combination of a GSA-approved security repository must be changed: prior to initially placing a GSA-approved security container into service as a classified repository when an individual who has knowledge of the combination is reassigned, transferred, or terminated when the access authorization (security clearance) of a person with the combination is downgraded to a level lower than the category of matter stored When the access authorization (security clearance) of a person with the combination is administratively terminated, suspended, or revoked When a security container or its combination is compromised or suspected to have been compromised or an unlocked and unattended security container is discovered 57 CHANGING THE COMBINATION
The SF-702, Security Container Check Sheet provides a record of the names and times that persons have opened, closed, and checked a particular repository that holds classified information. Space is provided to collect the information about the date, time, and initials of whoever opened, closed, and checked the security container (repository). When the repository is closed it must be “double” checked to ensure that it is secure. If no one is readily available to complete the secondary check, the word “last” may be indicated for the initials and time provided on the SF-702 in lieu of a second person performing a check. The custodian, or other authorized person, shall conduct end-of-day checks at or near the end of the workday on the days that the repository, vault, or VTR may have been accessed. This check will be indicated on the SF-702 in either the “CHECKED BY” box or the “GUARD CHECK” box. Repositories maintained continuously during 24 hour operations are not required to have end-of- day checks. 58 WHAT IS THE SF-702?
59 SF-702 INSTRUCTIONS
When classified matter is no longer required for operational, research, or historical purposes, it should be destroyed or reviewed for declassification. Custodians of classified matter must review their holdings on an on-going basis to reduce their classified matter to the minimum necessary Additional record keeping is required for destruction of accountable matter 60 DESTRUCTION OF CLASSIFIED MATTER Classified matter shall be destroyed in accordance with records disposition schedules, including NARA, GRS, and DOE Records Schedules
The method of destruction must remove the possibility of recognition or reconstruction of the classified matter. Classified matter shall be destroyed using equipment that meets the DOE criteria for destruction Destruction methods may include: burning (not currently used at PORTS), shredding, pulping, melting, mutilating, pulverizing, chemical decomposition or burial in an authorized DOE burial facility WEMS security shall approve all methods used for classified destruction 61 HOW CAN CLASSIFIED MATTER BE DESTROYED?
At PORTS, destruction of non-accountable classified documents (i.e., paper, viewgraphs, photographs, etc.) can be accomplished by utilizing approved cross- cut shredders approved by WEMS security. The shredder must have signs posted indicating that the shredder is approved for classified destruction Cross-cut shredders must produce a residue with a particle size not exceeding 1 mm (5/127 in.) in width by 5 mm in length (25/127 in.) The residue output shall be inspected each time destruction is effected to ensure that established requirements are met 62 HOW CAN NON-ACCOUNTABLE CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS BE DESTROYED?
PORTS currently does not contain accountable classified information; however, should a situation occur where accountable classified information must be destroyed ensure: destruction is coordinated with WEMS RMDC and security destruction is witnessed by another appropriately cleared person not performing the actual destruction destruction is completed in accordance with NARA GRS 18 and DOE records schedule 63 HOW CAN ACCOUNTABLE CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS BE DESTROYED?
Classified materials in use must be constantly attended by, or under the control of a person possessing the proper clearance and a need-to-know Custodians shall take appropriate measures (i.e., access control) to prevent individuals without the appropriate clearance and a need-to-know from having visual or physical access to the material Custodians must ensure all persons having access have completed the appropriate CMPC training Custodians must ensure classified material removed from processing equipment shall be concealed from view immediately after being removed Custodians must adhere to all CMPC procedures and DOE directives for protecting and controlling classified matter 64 CONTROL CLASSIFIED MATERIALS IN-USE
attempt to talk around classified subjects draft documents on unclassified computers assume that everyone you are discussing or transmitting with understands or adheres to the security rules assume open source (public) documents related to your subject area is unclassified revise or add to previously reviewed documents and assume it is still unclassified assume that unclassified facts associated or compiled with other unclassified facts would not disclose classified information 65 POTENTIAL CLASSIFIED SUBJECT AREA As a cleared employee/contractor at PORTS, you must constantly consider potential classified subject areas associated with your work. Before you discuss or transmit information within these subject areas ensure that a classification review has been conducted. When dealing with classified subject areas do not: Is this a secure area?
Technology or equipment that is especially designed or prepared Cascade operations Dimensional designs or drawings within buildings Special nuclear materials Security related 66 SUBJECT AREAS OF CONCERN Information that you process (e.g., originate, revise, add to, etc.) must be properly evaluated to ensure that subject areas are not potentially classified information. If you are unsure on whether the information is sensitive, DO NOT PROCESS. Stop all activities and seek guidance from an authorized derivative classifier who is considered a subject matter expert in the area of your concern. Potential sensitive subject areas that should be reviewed are:
two or more different unclassified facts are combined in a specific way resulting in a classified statement, or two or more different classified or unclassified facts are combined in a specific way resulting in a higher classification level or more restrictive category 67 ASSOCIATION AND COMPILATION Sometimes information can be classified by association or compilation when:
If you suspect that classified information may have been disclosed or compromised: Do not panic Immediately notify WEMS security in person or by secure means Do not discuss the issue with anyone outside of WEMS security or DOE security unless directed to do so by either Do not send an out alerting personnel of the disclosed classified information If you are unable to contact WEMS security, please notify the Plant Shift Superintendent (PSS) and request they contact the WEMS security manager 68 COMPROMISE OF CLASSIFIED INFORMATION Discussing or transmitting (e.g., phone, , etc.) the fact that classified information was lost or compromised may be considered classified information which would be a security incident. Do not panic
Sometimes classified information appears in open literature, to include the public domain (e.g., newspapers, websites, speeches, etc.). The purpose of the “no comment” policy, also called GEN-16, is so that employees do not add credibility to classified information in open literature. If approached about the disclosed classified information do not comment on accuracy, classification, or technical merit. Individuals are prohibited from commenting on classified information in open literature or public domain Avoid using the phrase “no comment” because its use may implicitly reveal classified information Appearance in open literature or public domain does not declassify the information 69 NO COMMENT POLICY The fact that classified information is in open literature or the public domain is itself classified; therefore, you cannot comment on the technical accuracy or classification status of such classified information. Do not comment
Section 234B stipulates that a contractor or subcontractor to the DOE who violates any rule, regulation, or order relating to the safeguarding or security of Restricted Data, other classified information, or sensitive information shall be subject to a civil penalty (fine) not to exceed $110,000 per offense. In publishing 10 CFR Part 824, DOE has determined that civil penalties under Part 824 will only be assessed for violations of requirements for the protection of classified information (Restricted Data, Formerly Restricted Data and National Security Information). The rule does not include civil penalties relating to failure to protect sensitive but unclassified information. 70 PENALTIES Penalties can be assessed to companies who mishandle classified information. Civil penalties for contractor violations of classified information are issued in accordance with Title 10, Code of Federal Regulations Part 824 (10 CFR Part 824). This CFR was published by the Department of Energy (DOE) to implement Section 234B of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, 42 U.S.C. 2282B.
Information may be released to the public if it is unclassified and not sensitive. A public release includes wide-spread distribution (e.g., distribution), posting to the internet, sharing as source documents, presentations, etc. for which anyone could gain access. Prior to public release, information must be reviewed for classification by the WEMS classification officer and export controlled information (ECI) reviewer. Submit form FSSF- 4101, Portsmouth Information Release Approval Request to the WEMS classification office to initiate formal review. Generally, information released to the public should not impact or damage: National security Government interests Company interests Personal privacy 71 FOR PUBLIC RELEASE
If an emergency is life-threatening, your health and safety takes precedence over the need to protect classified matter. For instance: If a fire occurs while a repository is open, personnel should put their safety first and secure the classified matter only if it does not endanger their safety or life As soon as possible, notify security of unsecured classified matter 72 LIFE SAFETY PRECEDENCE
Protecting and controlling classified matter is your responsibility. The improper handling and unauthorized disclosure of classified matter could harm National Security, our troops, and you. 73 SUMMARY
