Below are links to "Listed" areas. Travel to these areas may involve additional risk with regards to political stability, safety/security, or health.

UCAR employees traveling to "Listed Areas" must arrange for a special risk assessment and review with the Director of Safety and Site Services, per UCAR policy 4-4. This review assures that travelers are apprised of known potential risks and that appropriate steps are taken to reduce those risks. In some instances the risks may be unacceptable and travel may be delayed or postponed until conditions improve. Contact Steve Sadler, X8550, to arrange for an assessment/review. The assessment/review should be arranged as soon as possible but no later than 5 days prior to departure.
