Form DD 441 is implemented at the time of approval of the release of the facility and is considered a legally binding document between the U.S. government and the contractor. By signing this document, you agree to implement a safety program and meet the safety requirements outlined in the National Industrial Security Program (NISPOM). Running the form allows your organization to work on the classified contract. It also allows the federal government to review the safety program you have in place to ensure it complies with rules and regulations. The DD 441 is a simple two-page form with a few self-explained fields: after your company has been sponsored for an FCL, the DSS instructs the Industrial Safety Representative to help you meet NISPOM`s requirements.
