Radiation Protection


The University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) is required to manage radioactive materials in compliance with Title 10, Part 20 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR, Part 20), other applicable federal, and Chapter 4731 of the State of Minnesota Rules and university regulations.

The University of Minnesota Radiation Protection Division (RPD), Department of Environmental Health and Safety, with the review and approval of the All University Radiation Protection Advisory Committee (AURPAC), establishes uniform policies and procedures for the use of sources of ionizing radiation, and ensures compliance with the required procedures for collection, packaging, labeling, transport and disposal of radioactive waste generated throughout the University of Minnesota.

Minnesota Rules, Chapter 4731, Radioactive Materials requires that all licensees maintain written records regarding the receipt, storage, use and disposal of radioactive material. This information must be recorded by Permit Holders and their staff and supplied to RPD on a routine basis for documentation. The RPD maintains these required records for review by the NRC as part of their annual inspection of the University NRC license.

As an investigator generating radioactive waste, your assistance and cooperation with all waste handling procedures, and compliance with the Minnesota Department of Health 's Radiation Control rules and requirements is essential to assure a safer management of radioactive waste and use of radioactive materials at UMD.
