To obtain authorization to procure and use radiation sources, a prospective Authorized User must submit Schedules C and/or D, as applicable. The Radiation Safety Officer will review the application and schedule an interview with the prospective user to evaluate the facilities available, the training and experience of the applicant and staff for the proposed use, and the details of the proposed research using radioactive materials or x-rays.

The procedures described in the application, as modified by the Radiation Safety Officer and/or the Radiation Safety Committee, become the conditions under which they authorize a researcher and his/her personnel to use radiation sources. The Radiation Safety Officer must review any subsequent change in procedure regarding the use, storage or disposal of sources prior to instituting the change. Please read the UNC Radiation Safety Manual for more information.
