EEOICPA CIRCULAR NO. 07-05                 July 20, 2007     

 

SUBJECT:  De-listing of three AWEs

 

The purpose of this circular is to provide notification that three entities previously identified as Atomic Weapons Employers (AWEs) have been officially delisted.  Procedures for handling this situation were previously provided in Bulletin Number 07-03. 

 

The Department of Energy published a Federal Register Notice on Thursday, June 28, 2007 (Attachment 1) which made it clear that the designations of the following AWEs were erroneous and thus were officially removed from the list of covered facilities:

 

 

 

 

Per this circular, claims arising from employment based upon these three formerly designated AWEs are to be treated the same way as the National Bureau of Standards, the Seneca Army Depot, the Picatinny Arsenal and the Frankford Arsenal, as described in Bulletin No. 07-03.
