Xron provides environmental services to government and commercial clients. Our services include environmental permitting, hazardous and radioactive waste management consulting, compliance planning and assessments, remedial design report and remedial action planning under CERCLA, RCRA closure planning, and development of environmental management systems that have been successfully evaluated under the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System Standard.
Xron provides services in compliance management. Our services focus on defining the work practices involved and developing the appropriate system to achieve consistent compliance with requirements while maintaining optimum operations. Activity-Based Compliance TM systems developed by Xron have been used at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation, Idaho National Engineering Laboratory and Waste Isolation Pilot Plant. Our compliance management systems have included development of environmental management systems under the ISO 14001and DOE Integrated Safety Management System. Our services include regulatory analysis, regulatory applicability determination, compliance assessment services and complete compliance system development.
Xron provides services to support operations, maintenance, engineering, construction and deactivation activities. Our goal is to provide support services to optimize performance in each of these areas while integrating environmental protection, safety and compliance. Our work management processes have been employed at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation, Savannah River Site, Idaho National Engineering Laboratory, Yucca Mountain Project, Waste Isolation Pilot Plant as well as at commercial nuclear power plants.
Xron has developed data systems to manage requirements, assessments, compliance systems and various other data to support compliance management. Our Requirements Accountability Management System (RAMS) TM , used to relate requirements to implementing processes and accountable positions is currently being employed at numerous facilities at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation. Similar systems have been developed for use in Operational Readiness Assessments, to manage waste acceptance requirements, and to manage the closure of compliance assessments. Our approach to data management systems is to include only what is necessary; maintaining simplicity and focus to the data management needs at hand.
