Berkeley Lab is an unclassified science
facility, performing no classified research, and makes its facilities
available for use by investigators from institutions throughout
the nation and the world. It features an open environment that promotes
free intellectual exchanges and collaborative efforts within the
international scientific and technical community. Nonetheless, the
Laboratory strives to provide a safe and secure work environment
for its employees and guests. Its scientific mission requires that
Laboratory assets and resources, both intellectual and material,
be protected. We maintain and enforce strict policies on physical
security and property protection as part of the federally supported
U.S. Department of Energy national laboratory system. Any exception
to these policies which warrants consideration due to national needs
must be approved by the Director of the Laboratory, who will assess
the exceptions on a case-by-case basis.
