The Massachusetts Department of Public Health's Bureau of Environmental Health’s Radiation Control Program protects the health and safety of the residents of the Commonwealth from the harmful effects of ionizing and non-ionizing radiation. RCP staff addresses a range of issues associated with radioactive materials including the regulation of specific radioactive sources, x-ray technology, nuclear medicine, mammography, professional training and licensure for radiologic technologists, laser registration, and more. The Nuclear Incident Advisory Team (NIAT) routinely participates in exercises to evaluate emergency plans to address nuclear power plant events. RCP staff also work with other Bureau of Environmental Health Programs to carry out environmental monitoring activities and with local boards of health to regulate conditions related to the use of UV light in tanning facilities.
