Reviewing Official Training

Licensees including hospitals, blood bank irradiators, industrial radiograph equipment, massive facilities for irradiating certain food and medical supplies, laboratory equipment for research into radiation and its effects, state regulators and manufacturers, distributors and transporters of radioactive sources, whether operating in an Agreement or Non-Agreement State, must have their RO(s) approved by the NRC. This requirement is presently in effect even in Agreement States wherein they have a 2 or 3 year grace period to implement the background investigation requirements. This approval is made through the Licensees submission of Name, fingerprint and affirmation that the individual is trained and has the skills required to function as a RO.
