Primary Subsystem • Consists of three major components • Inventory • Transaction • Material Balance
DOE/NRC Form 741 DOE/NRC Form 740 M Facility Distribution Originates with the shipper or receiver Inventory DOE/NRC Form 742C Facility Distribution Originates with the facility Document Flow Transactions ELECTRONIC D-23 DOE D-24 NRC Material Balance NMMSS USERS DOE/NRC Form 742
Acceptable Electronic Formats • XML (Extensible Markup Language) • 80 Column File
Purpose of the D-23 &D-24 • Provides formatting requirements for the reporting of nuclear material information in electronic file formats in accordance with DOE & NRC regulations and guidelines
Four Major Categories of Information Products • Reports • Detailed • Summary • Analytical • Directories • Information Manuals • PC Applications
The Transaction Data System • Began capturing data as an automated system in 1968 • The largest and most active component of the NMMSS • Contains information on all events that cause a facility’s inventory to increase or decrease • Data is stored in the NMMSS files at the level of detail in which it is reported
What is a Transaction ? • Physical Movements of Material Between Facilities • On-site Gains and Losses Resulting From Remeasurement, Operating Losses, etc. • Movement of Material Between Programs Within a Facility

Electronic Submission • D-23 & D-24 Directory provide electronic formatting requirements - 80 Column - XML (Extensible Markup Language) • Alternative for submitting electronic data - SAMS (Safeguards Management Software)
Process Codes A Entry of New Data Set C Replacement of Data Set D Deletion of Data Set Z Accepts Shippers/Receivers change (NRC use only)
Action Codes Code Description Ship Recv A Identifies shipper’s original data X B Identifies receiver’s data accepting X weights without measurement C Identifies shipper’s adjustment or X acceptance/acknowledgment of a receiver’s adjustment D Identifies receiver’s adjustment or X acceptance/acknowledgment of a shipper’s adjustment E Identifies receiver’s independent X measurement
Transaction System Record Types 1. Header 2. Descriptive (Detail) 3. Import/Export 4. Gross Weight 5. Quantitative (Detail) 6. Concise Notes 7. Obligated Material
Transaction Terminology • Shipment - one event • Receipt - one event • Transaction data set – combined events • Process date - year and month • Data elements • quantitative values • special codes • Transaction identification
Dates to Remember in NMMSS 2003 CAPTURE DATE ACTION DATE PROCESS DATE
Dates to Remember in NMMSS • Action Date - MMDDYYYY, this is the date that the activity (shipment, NOL/MD/AL. Etc.) actually took place • Capture Date - MMDDYYYY, this is the date that the 741 was captured by the system, i.e., received into the database • Process Date - YYYYMM, date of the process month open during which the transaction was filed
Reference Information • NUREG/BR-0006, Rev. 7 • DOE Manual 470.4-6 • NMMSS Authority Reference Files • Reports
What is an In-House Transaction? • An In-House Transaction is a (741) transaction used to report the on-site gains or losses of reportable nuclear materials to the NMMSS, which are not typically part of a shipment or receipt associated with another facility.
In-House Transaction Use • Used to report gains and losses of your inventory. • Report Stand-alone Concise Notes (IAEA). • In some cases it is used to correct previously reported data.
How To Report In-House Transactions • The same as shipment or receipt transactions, except: • Same RIS for both shipper and receiver. • Action Code is “M”. • Must use an Inventory Change Type (ICT) • No Gross Weight reported • No Number of Items reported • Special edit checks apply to some ICT codes used on an In-House transaction. (slide 9).

Other Instances to Complete an In-House Transaction • NMMSS may ask you to correct previously reported data in your NMMSS account. Sometimes using the In-House transaction is the best way to make certain changes. A NMMSS Analyst will assist you in these instances.
When is a Adjustment transaction required? An Adjustment is required when correcting a previously reported transaction that has been processed and moved to the Historical section of the NMMSS Database. The month in which it was processed is closed.
When do you use a Process Code to make an Adjustment? You can change or delete data on previously submitted transactions that are in an Open month, using a specific Process Code.
Process Codes A – Initial transaction C – Replacement transaction D – Delete a transaction Z – Receiver’s acceptance of correction Only used in an open month.
What is an Open process month? NMMSS normally closes the database processing around the 22nd of each month for the previous months data received. Example: April processing month will close approximately May 22. Transactions with an Action Date of April or earlier will move to the Historical section of the database. May Action Dates will stay in the Compatibility section of the database. Now May is the “Open” month.
Action Code CUsed by the Shipper to make corrections • Adjusting previously reported shipments • Acknowledging receiver adjustments • Accepting receiver adjustments
Action CodeDUsed by the Receiver to make corrections • Adjusting previously reported receipts • Acknowledging shipper adjustments • Accepting shipper adjustments
Action CodeMUsed for One Party transactions The Correction Identifier (either alpha or numeric) distinguishes it as an Adjustment.
