The North Carolina regulations for protection against radiation

INTRODUCTION

The North Carolina Radiation Protection Act (G.S. 104E) established the North Carolina Radiation Protection Commission with the power to "… adopt, promulgate, amend and repeal such rules, regulations and standards relating to the manufacture, production, transportation, use, handling, servicing, installation, storage, sale, lease, or other disposition of radioactive materials and machines …" and to " … provide by rule and regulation for an electronic product safety program to protect the public health and safety, which program may authorize regulation and inspection of sources of non-ionizing radiation throughout the state.

 

The North Carolina Radiation Protection Commission adopted new state rules for protection against radiation at its meeting.  These Rules became effective January 2005.

 

With the passage of Senate Bill 1251 by the North Carolina 2002 General Assembly, the Division of Radiation Protection was renamed as the Radiation Protection Section and became part of the Division of Environmental Health in the Department of Environment and Natural Resources. These changes were made effective July 1, 2002.

 

These Rules were promulgated to protect and promote the public health and safety.  All licensees and registrants of the Radiation Protection Section, North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources, should study and fully understand these Rules as they apply to their particular regulated activities.
