(b)   uranium mines, mills, refineries, and conversion plants;
(c)    uranium fuel fabrication plants;
(d)   isotope processing facilities;
(e)    particle accelerators with a beam energy equal to or greater than 50 MeV; and
(f)    waste management facilities.

Note: In this Standard, all of these facilities are included in the term “nuclear facilities”.

Parts of this Standard might also be relevant to ERAs for other facilities such as

(a)    Class II nuclear facilities;
