Who we serve

RCP staff address a range of issues associated with radioactive materials including the regulation of specific radioactive sources, x-ray technology, nuclear medicine, mammography, professional training and licensure for radiologic technologists, laser registration, and more.

The Nuclear Incident Advisory Team (NIAT) routinely trains and is available to respond to radioactive material events such as Nuclear power plant emergencies. RCP staff also work with other Bureau of Environmental Health Programs to carry out environmental monitoring activities and with local boards of health to regulate conditions related to the use of UV light in tanning facilities.
