About the Radiation Safety Program

The Radiation Safety Program is responsible for ensuring that all users of ionizing radiation and radiation producing machines are in compliance with existing regulatory requirements. All radioactive materials at the University of California, Riverside(UCR)  are licensed by the State of California under a Broadscope License.  This license grants authority to the UCR Radiation Safety Committee to authorize the use of radioactive materials at any of its facilities.  Radiation producing machines are registered by the California Radiologic Health Branch and must also be authorized by the UCR Radiation Safety Committee. 

Each year a report is written  indicating the UCR's compliance with requirements of the radiation safety program.The Annual Review for 2016 can be accessed here
