Radiation Control Program Notices


Change to Delaware Radiation Control Regulations


Effective November 13th, 2018, the following sets of regulations (Title 16 Delaware Administrative Code, 4465 Chapter 74, Radiation Control) were published as final rule: Parts A, B, D, F, H, K, and X. The regulations were amended to reflect changes or advances in the practice community, and to be more consonant with other state and federal regulations. Establishing radiation control regulations is the statutory mandate of the Authority on Radiation Protection, a governor-appointed public board which establishes the radiation control regulations to protect the public health and safety. The Office of Radiation Control is the administrative agent for the Authority, and carries out the regulations. Follow this link to see the entire regulation 4465.
