Radiation Protection Rule

Pursuant to GS 150B-21.3A, Periodic Review and Expiration of Existing Rules, all rules are reviewed at least every 10 years, or they shall expire. As a result of the periodic review of Chapter 10A NCAC 15, Radiation Protection, this proposed readoption rule was part of the 257 rules determined as “Necessary With Substantive Public Interest,” requiring readoption. With input from the Non-Ionizing Committee of the Radiation Protection Commission, substantive changes have been made to this rule. Safety measures have been added requiring the registrant to determine each consumer’s skin type in accordance with a skin typing system and record the skin type in the client tan record, and to document the tanning equipment’s ultraviolet bulb usage hours.
