Maintain Work with Radiation


A radiation work permit often requires amending: approved radiation workers, types and/or amounts of material, locations, processes, etc. Click on “Change” for information helpful to sustaining radiation-related research.



Termination of radiation-related work must be done so in a way that radiation hazards from the permit are removed and all regulatory requirements are met. Click on “End” for information related to proper permit termination.
