 1. In high radiation conditions the Radiation Monitor System will shut down the accelerator upon initial motion of shielding door towards open direction. ​ This feature exceeds the requirement because shutdown happens before there is an opening in shielding and before there can be any barrier penetration. ​ The Dock and Mechanical Room are not considered high radiation areas unless future surveys prove them to be otherwise. 1.

-4. A new Shutdown Module will be designed and constructed by the Nuclear Instrumentation Engineer that complies with this design logic. ​ The new module will be installed in parallel with the existing shutdown module.  ​We have great confidence in the safety provided by the current Shutdown ​Module and the process in which operators confirm its functionality at startup.+4. We have great confidence in the safety provided by the original Shut-down ​Module and the process in which operators confirm its functionality at start-up. ​ In addition to the original Shut-down Module we have added the following additional interlocks to the accelerator operation. ​ A redundant independent shut-down relay must be energized by the lack of an accumulated dose greater than 20 mR to allow accelerator operation. ​ The redundant independent shut-down relay must also be energized by the lack of a maximum dose rate of 100 mR/H signal to allow accelerator operation. ​ If this relay fails, the accelerator will shut-down. ​ This arrangement gives backup shut-down mechanisms for both accumulated maximum dose shut-down and also maximum dose rate shut-down. An additional circuit to detect the maximum dose rate has also been implemented as a backup for the maximum dose rate detection electronics that will shut down the accelerator at a dose rate of 160 mR/H in the event the 100 mR/H detection system would fail.  If the radiation monitor or the shut-down module do not have mains power applied the accelerator will shut-down. ​ The accelerator will also shut-down if the interconnect cable between the radiation monitor and Shut-down module is removed.
  
 5. We consider this requirement to be met by having to ensure that a door interlock is properly engaged after a shutdown by the Radiation Monitor System, or by having to reset the EMO button in that type of shutdown. ​ We exceed this requirement by the fact that the ACPC in the Vault must be reset after any type of shutdown. 5.
