As required by the "North Carolina Regulations For Protection Against Radiation" rule .0205 Application For Registration of Services.  Each registrant who is engaged in the business of installing or offering to install radiation machines and machine components or is engaged in the business of furnishing or offering to furnish any equipment services to any licensee or registrant, shall apply for registration of such services with the agency prior to furnishing or offering to furnish any of these services.  

 

A plan review, also called a shielding design, must be submitted for review prior to installation of x-ray equipment pursuant to Rule .0603 of 15A NCAC 11 "The North Carolina Regulations for Protection Against Radiation". The plan review/shielding design must be submitted t for review and acknowledgment by North Carolina Radiation Protection.

A plan review/shielding design illustrates the equipment arrangement of an x-ray room and projects lead or lead-equivalent shielding needed to confine radiation within the x-ray room. This shielding serves to protect occupants of adjoining rooms and the x-ray operator who is required to remain behind a protective barrier during exposures. A contracted qualified expert obtains information from the facility concerning occupancy rate of applicable areas and workload (number of x-rays taken in a period of time) of the x-ray room and performs calculations according to NCRP 49 and NCRP 147 recommendations. Recommendations for shielding in each barrier in the room are projected from these calculations.

Upon completion of installation of x-ray equipment a post installation survey is required to document shielding integrity. The post-installation survey must be performed by a registered, qualified expert.
