Radiological Health Program


To protect Rhode Islanders from excessive exposure to ionizing and non-ionizing radiation through ensuring the safe use of radioactive materials, x-ray equipment, and tanning equipment.

What we do

  • Register use of radioactive materials. No individual or facility is allowed to use radioactive materials in Rhode Island without a current Specific, General or Reciprocity license issued by us.
  • License x-ray and tanning equipment and facilities. Registration is required for the use of x-ray equipment and the individuals who provides install and service them. Each location which has a x-ray or tanning equipment is required to be registered. Tanning registrations, which have a change of ownership require the filing of a new registration application.
