|General Licensing Program|
Measuring, Gauging, Controlling, Light Producing, and Ionizing Devices
If you receive a generally licensable device as defined in 15A NCAC 11 .0309 of the North Carolina Regulations for Protection Against Radiation, you must register the device with the agency. In most cases, the agency will send a letter to you within 60 days after the end of the calendar quarter in which you receive the device providing instructions on how to register your device. The letter will contain a form that you will need to complete for registration purposes. The form is also available on this website.
The devices must be maintained and controlled in accordance with the regulations contained in 15A NCAC 11 .0309. The organization possessing the device must appoint a "responsible individual" that will serve as the contact with our agency regarding licensing of the device. This individual must be knowledgeable of the regulations governing the use of the device, and ensure that the device is maintained and controlled in accordance with the regulations.
Generally licensable devices must be disposed of properly when no longer needed. The most common method of disposal is return to the manufacturer. When a device is disposed, you must acquire written confirmation of receipt from the organization receiving the device. You are responsible for all devices received until proper confirmation of disposal is received. The agency must be notified of disposal or transfer of devices as outlined in 15A NCAC 11 .0309(c)(7). Keep all records of receipt and disposal for your records.
A generally licensable device may not be transferred to another general licensee except as authorized in 15A NCAC 11 .0309(c)(8).
