Radiation Control Program

The Radiation Control Program monitors the development and use of ionizing radiation sources and devices to protect the health and safety of North Dakotans and the environment. The program licenses radioactive material users and registers x-ray facilities. Staff members track about 62 radioactive material licenses, more than 700 x-ray registrants, and perform periodic inspections of both types of radiation users. Please read our disclaimer.

Questions may be addressed to the North Dakota Department of Health at 701.328.5188 or ram@nd.gov for Radioactive Materials and x-ray@nd.gov for Radiation Machines.
