Nature of Occurrence (Reporting Criteria)

Occurrences are categorized into Reporting Criteria groupings. These groupings are generic and relate to DOE operations. This field is required for all occurrence reports. Each report must include all reporting criteria that pertain to the event.

From the Specify New Database Criteria page, specify Reporting Criteria values using the Reporting Criteria selection boxes, shown below. Note that because the Reporting Criteria/Nature of Occurrence field has different values for data entered on or after the ORPS redesign, two NOC selection boxes are provided. The left selection box applies to data created prior to the ORPS redesign. The right selection box applies to data created after the ORPS redesign using the new interface.

Nature of Occurrence Selection Box

Note that OR logic is always applied when there are multiple selections within a selection box.
