FED-STD-809B, FEDERAL STANDARD: NEUTRALIZATION AND REPAIR OF GSA APPROVED CONTAINERS AND VAULT DOORS (15-JAN-2010)
FED-STD-809B, FEDERAL STANDARD: NEUTRALIZATION AND REPAIR OF GSA APPROVED CONTAINERS AND VAULT DOORS (15-JAN-2010)., This standard establishes requirements for the neutralization and repair of GSA approved containers and vault doors. It provides the US Government with an economic alternative to replacing containers or vault doors that have been damaged from opening techniques used as a result of combination lock and bolt linkage failures. The opening and repair methods described in this standard have been designed specifically to balance the cost- effectiveness of repair versus replacement while maintaining the security integrity of the container or vault door. To meet the goal of this standard, only properly trained and equipped personnel should attempt to perform the opening and repair methods described in this standard.
The General Services Administration (GSA) authorizes commercial training facilities specifically approved by GSA to provide hands-on training in these opening and repair methods. Upon successful completion of this course, the GSA Certified Technician shall be capable of opening the locked-out container or vault door using one of the approved methods contained herein without creating any additional vulnerabilities. The security integrity is only restored if a GSA Certified Technician strictly adheres to the methods contained within this Standard. Any deviation to the opening and repair methods outlined in this Standard will require GSA approval before a recertification can be authorized.
The opening and repair methods described in this federal standard can be hazardous to the technician and the office environment, requiring full knowledge of safety equipment and procedures. In some cases it may be necessary to move the security container to a safe and secure area before attempting the opening and repair methods described in this standard.
