Article 1
General Provisions

12VAC5-481-600. Purpose.

A. Part IV (12VAC5-481-600 et seq.) of this chapter establishes standards for protection against ionizing radiation resulting from activities conducted pursuant to licenses or registrations issued by the agency. These regulations are issued pursuant to the Act, as amended.

B. The requirements of Part IV (12VAC5-481-600 et seq.) of this chapter are designed to control the receipt, possession, use, transfer, and disposal of sources of radiation by any licensee or registrant so the total dose to an individual, including doses resulting from all sources of radiation other than background radiation, does not exceed the standards for protection against radiation prescribed in Part IV (12VAC5-481-600 et seq.) of this chapter. However, nothing in Part IV (12VAC5-481-600 et seq.) of this chapter shall be construed as limiting actions that may be necessary to protect health and safety in an emergency.
