Facilities in Minnesota with ionizing-radiation producing x-ray equipment must be registered with the Minnesota Department of Health, Radiation Control, X-ray Unit. X-ray fees cover the costs of running a statewide registration, compliance and education program, as well as to maintain and protect the health and safety of the workers and general public. The fees are approved by the legislature and are mandated under Minnesota Statute 144.121.
All equipment and facility notifications should be made through the online Verification System effective May 15, 2017. Please refer to the guidance documents below. If you have questions email email@example.com or call 651-201-4545.

Facilities not registered with MDH, currently registered but under new ownership, or satellite offices that have not been registered must fill out the Initial Registration Form. New facilities obtaining x-ray equipment must pay fees and register their facility prior to first use of the equipment. New facilities will receive an invite to our online Verification System after registration payment is processed.
Facilities that are currently registered with MDH who have a new console or tube, must fill out the Additional Registration Form and should notify MDH in the online Verification System within 30 days and prior to first use of the equipment.
X-ray Machine Equipment Transfer
(transfer equipment between facilities under same ownership)
Facilities that transfer x-ray equipment from one of their registered locations to another should delete the console at one site, and add the console at the other site in the online Verification System. Refer to the documents under Verification System for guidance.
Change in Facility Information
Facilities that have a change in facility information to their demographics, contacts or equipment should make that change in the online Verification System. Refer to the documents under Verification System for guidance.
