THE BADGE OFFICE WILL BE CLOSED 8/2 – 8/4.
RETURNING TO REGULAR BUSINESS HOURS 8/5/2021
During the next phase of the Lab’s Transition Mode, for employees deemed essential to the operations of the Lab, the Badge Office will be open by appointment only during the hours below:
- Monday – Friday: 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
To reserve a badge/parking permit appointment, all staff must receive the required Supervisor authorization before arriving onsite. Any staff experiencing badge issues can also email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the Site Operations Center at 510-486-6999 for assistance while on site.
In 2019, DOE required LBNL to add expiration dates to our LBNL badges. Adding an expiration date is a common best practice when issuing credentials, licenses, and badges. The expiration date on the badge is tied to the length of the appointment and may not exceed five years. For non-US citizens, this expiration date cannot exceed the end dates of required documentation. This process provides an active versus passive means of managing badges to ensure individuals who have a badge still need them, and allows us the opportunity to ensure badges are updated with current pictures, technology, etc.
The SES initiative to rebadge the Lab population with printed expiration dates on their badges was stalled due to Covid. As personnel return to the site to work, we will be resuming this effort. If you do not have a printed expiration date on your badge, please make an appointment to obtain a new badge using this link.
The Berkeley Lab badge serves a dual purpose: as an identification badge and as a Berkeley Lab access card. Badges are issued upon verification of employment or affiliate status, and are programmed according to status.
Badges with expiration dates are automatically deactivated upon completion of the appointment. Upon termination of employment or affiliate status, the badge must be returned to the Site Access Office. All lost or stolen badges must be reported to the Site Access office as soon as possible.
- Badges are issued at the Site Access Office for all LBNL employees, users, and affiliates.
- 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Monday – Friday, by appointment and with supervisor approval only
