have developed a fitness-for-duty program that is formally reviewed by 
a licensee, and licensees authorized to possess, use, or transport 
Category 1 nuclear material to implement fitness-for-duty programs to 
assure that personnel are not under the influence of any substance or

with the management of these programs, and to provide reports 
concerning significant events and program performance. Compliance with 
these program requirements is mandatory for licensees subject to 10 CFR

comply with security order EA-03-038, which implements work hour 
controls for security force personnel and requires licensees to retain 
certain records associated with the management of this security order.
