X-ray and laser registration

Submitted by Radiation Safety Office

The radiation safety office in the Department of Environmental Health and Safety has sent the annual X-ray registration and laser inventory form to departments.

All accelerators and X-ray-producing devices, such as diagnostic, cabinet, XRF, XRD, etc., are required to be registered with the state of Kansas each year and pay an associated fee. Please notify your department office if you possess any of these devices.

This year, there is an additional survey of Class 3B and 4 laser equipment, which includes lasers embedded in Class 1 systems such as laser cutters and engravers. If you are unsure of the class of laser system you have, please contact Maria Catanach at mcatanach@k-state.edu or 785-532-5847. Please note that this does not include laser pointers, CD players, laser printers or other common consumer electronics.

If your department has not received the form and has these devices or if you have any questions, email radsafety@k-state.edu or call 785-532-5856.
