Radiation Program Licenses and Regulations


In Texas, radioactive materials and X-ray devices are regulated by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS). The State’s Radiation Control Program Regulations can be found in 25TAC289 and are considered state law. Applicable regulations are available upon request from the Radiation Safety Office.


The University of Texas at Austin has several licenses and registrations with the State for the use of radioactive materials and x-ray machines in research, educational, industrial, veterinary, and clinical applications.
