Registering X-Ray Equipment

All new or newly acquired x-ray units or other radiation producing equipment must be registered with Minnesota Department of Health (MDH). This registration must be completed, and the associated fees paid, within 30 days of installation of the unit. Use the new x-ray information sheet to supply the necessary information to DRS, and they will submit the registration to the state. The Department of Radiation Safety (DRS) also handles the annual renewal registrations for all the x-ray units they oversee. Charges are billed back to instrument owners on an annual basis.

MDH must also be notified if radiation producing equipment is brought into the state on a temporary basis, such as a loaner unit, a temporary use unit, or a demonstration unit.

Contact the Department of Radiation Safety at (612) 626-6002 or rpd@umn.edu for assistance with registration.
