Radiation & Laser Safety

EWUs use of radiation is authorized by a license issued by the Washington State Department of Health (DOH).  The state's authority is derived from federal legislation and formal agreement between the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, a federal agency and DOH.  The University maintains a laboratory radioactive materials license.  This license allows radionuclide possession and use as listed in the license.  See the Radiation Safety Directive below for more information and procedures for use.
