X-Ray: Have to report to state? | 9 March, 2005

Good day all,we recently got our new xray system up and running and I am wondering if we need to report to the state,Rhode Island, that we have this onsite...anyone have any clues? The salesmen said we do not but id like a second opinion. Thanks JD

I know in Florida you must report. I don't know if it is state or federally mandated. I would call to be sure.

In Oregon your machine must be registered and have an anual site survey. Additionally, it must comply with safety and monitoring requirements set forth by the state.

For the record, I would not mess around and be penny wise pound foolish. These machines have safety protocalls for a reason. Think of it this way. You don't register your machine. The state presses on your local municipality and pulls your occupancy permit. It's worth the $110 registrtion fee (in Oregon).

No opinion here, but each state [and probably country] regulates xray machines through a "Radiation Control Agency". For a starting point to learn more about state policies, look here: http://www.rmis.rmfamily.com/db/agencyradia.php

The contact for the Rhode Island Department of Health, Division of Occupational Health and Radiation Control is: http://www.state.ri.us/dohrad.htm

We'd expect that your equipment supplier has been down this path previously in your state and already has copies of all the forms and whatnot and answers to all your questions.
