DHS 157.94(6)(f)1.a. a. The quality assurance program approval holder shall not implement the change before receiving NRC approval.
DHS 157.94(6)(f)1.b. b. The description of a proposed change to the NRC-approved quality assurance program must identify the change, the reason for the change, and the basis for concluding that the revised program incorporating the change continues to satisfy the applicable requirements of 10 CFR 71 subpart H.
DHS 157.94(6)(f)2. 2. Each quality assurance program approval holder may change a previously approved quality assurance program without prior NRC approval, if the change does not reduce the commitments in the quality assurance program previously approved by the NRC. Changes to the quality assurance program that do not reduce the commitments shall be submitted to the NRC every 24 months, in accordance with 10 CFR 71.1(a). In addition to quality assurance program changes involving administrative improvements and clarifications, spelling corrections, and non-substantive changes to punctuation or editorial items, the following changes are not considered reductions in commitment:
DHS 157.94(6)(f)2.a. a. The use of a quality assurance standard approved by the NRC that is more recent than the quality assurance standard in the certificate holder's or applicant's current quality assurance program at the time of the change.
DHS 157.94(6)(f)2.b. b. The use of generic organizational position titles that clearly denote the position function, supplemented as necessary by descriptive text, rather than specific titles, provided that there is no substantive change to either the functions of the position or reporting responsibilities.

DHS 157.94(6)(f)2.e. e. Organizational revisions that ensure that persons and organizations performing quality assurance functions continue to have the requisite authority and organizational freedom, including sufficient independence from cost and schedule when opposed to safety considerations.
DHS 157.94(6)(f)3. 3. Each quality assurance program approval holder shall maintain records of quality assurance program changes.
DHS 157.94(6)(g) (g) The licensee, certificate holder, and applicant for a certificate of compliance shall maintain sufficient written records to describe the activities affecting quality.
DHS 157.94(6)(g)1. 1. The records shall include the following:
DHS 157.94(6)(g)1.a. a. Changes to the quality assurance program as required by par. (f).
DHS 157.94(6)(g)1.b. b.

DHS 157.94(6)(g)2. 2. The licensee, certificate holder, and applicant for a certificate of compliance shall retain these records for 3 years beyond the date when the licensee, certificate holder, and applicant for a certificate of compliance last engages in the activity for which the quality assurance program was developed. If any portion of the quality assurance program, written procedures or instructions is superseded, the licensee, certificate holder, and applicant for a certificate of compliance shall retain the superseded material for 3 years after it is superseded.
DHS 157.94(7) (7)Assumptions as to unknown properties of fissile material. When the isotopic abundance, mass, concentration, degree of irradiation, degree of moderation, or other pertinent property of fissile material in any package is not known, the licensee shall package the fissile material as if the unknown properties have credible values that will cause the maximum neutron multiplication.
DHS 157.94(8) (8)Preliminary determinations. Prior to the first use of any packaging for the shipment of radioactive material a licensee shall ascertain that the determination requirements in 10 CFR 71.85 (a) through (c) have been made.
