Radioactive Materials and Industrial X-Ray Device Program (Ionizing Radiation)
The Radioactive Materials and Industrial X-Ray Device Program registers users of radioactive materials and/or industrial x-ray sources and ensures compliance with DEEP's regulations through on-site inspections. The purpose of the program is to evaluate the radiation exposure to employees and the general public and to reduce such exposure to the lowest practicable level.
- Radioactive material is any solid, liquid or gas that emits radiation spontaneously.
- Industrial sources of ionizing radiation include:
Baggage X-ray Devices
- Lead Paint Analyzers
- Cabinet X-Ray Systems
- Density and Thickness Gauges
- Linear or Circular Accelerators for Radioisotope Production
- Van de Graaff Machines
