EEOICPA Eligible Work Sites

The Department of Energy (DOE) via the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) has compiled a list of nearly 400 work sites that are eligible for some type of compensation via the EEOICPA.  Victory Medical Solutions is compiling a list of approved EEOICPA eligible work sites.  Click on each site for individual, specific information on each site, including the eligible work periods in which EEOICPA compensation has been approved by the Department of Energy.

The Big List of EEOICPA Facilities


The list below shows the three categories of employers defined by the Act:

  1. Atomic weapons employers (AWE)
  2. Department of Energy facilities (DOE)
  3. Beryllium vendors (BE)

Some facilities fall into more than one category. For example, a facility will have both DOE and AWE codes if ownership changed between the DOE and another entity. Each facility has a specific time frame for coverage under the Act as either an AWE, DOE or BE; facilities with multiple designation may have differing time periods for coverage by type.

Each of the categories is defined below:

1. Atomic Weapons Employers

Section 3621 (4) of the Act defines an atomic weapons employer as “an entity that–
(A) processed or produced, for the use by the United States, material that emitted radiation and was used in the production of an atomic weapon, excluding uranium mining and milling; and
(B) is designated as an atomic weapons employer for purposes of this title by the Secretary of Energy.”

Most facilities listed as an AWE conducted nuclear weapons-related work for a limited period of time or in certain select areas of the plant. For example, some sites worked with radioactive materials to evaluate processing machinery that was being considered for use in atomic weapons production. Radioactive materials may not have been used as a routine part of the facility’s operations.

EEOICPA Part B applies to AWE facilities and workers.


2. Department of Energy Facilities

Section 3621 (12) of the Act defines a Department of Energy facility as “any building, structure, or premise, including the grounds upon which such building, structure, or premise is located–
(A) in which operations are, or have been, conducted by, or on behalf of, the Department of Energy (except for buildings, structures, premises, grounds, or operations covered by Executive Order 12344, pertaining to the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program); and
(B) with regard to which the Department of Energy has or had–
(i) a proprietary interest; or
(ii) entered into a contract with an entity to provide management and operation, management and integration, environmental remediation services, construction, or maintenance services.”

EEOICPA Part B and Part E applies to DOE facilities and workers.


3. Beryllium Vendors

Section 3621(6) of the Act defines beryllium vendor as the following:
“(A) Atomics International.
(B) Brush Wellman, Incorporated, and its predecessor, Brush Beryllium Company.
(C) General Atomics.
(D) General Electric Company.
(E) NGK Metals Corporation and its predecessors, Kawecki-Berylco, Cabot Corporation, BerylCo, and Beryllium Corporation of America.
(F) Nuclear Materials and Equipment Corporation.
(G) StarMet Corporation, and its predecessor, Nuclear Metals, Incorporated.
(H) Wyman Gordan, Incorporated.
(I) Any other vendor, processor, or producer of beryllium or related products designated as a beryllium vendor for purposes of this title under Section 3622.”

 EEOICPA Part B applies to BE facilities and workers.
