Program information

We work to prevent avoidable radiation injury to members of the public, radiation workers and the environment by regulating sources of ionizing radiation including radioactive materials and x-ray machines. 

We provide oversight, licensing, and inspection of medical, industrial, and other facilities that possess, use, and dispose of radioactive materials. Radioactive materials may include naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM) and technologically enhanced naturally occurring radioactive material (TENORM). We regulate and register x-ray machines, facilities, service providers, and certain operators.

We also provide other resources on how to reduce radon exposure in homes.
