The mission of the Radiation Control, X-ray Program is to protect and promote radiation safety through guidance and collaboration with the radiation community. Our vision is to reduce unnecessary radiation exposure from the use of ionizing radiation producing equipment.
Minnesota Rule Chapter 4732 strives to control and prevent hazards to health and safety from ionizing radiation, without limiting or interfering with its constructive uses. Except as otherwise specifically provided, this chapter applies to all persons who receive, possess, use, transfer, own or acquire any radiation-producing equipment. The scope of this chapter does not include those sources of ionizing radiation known as radioactive materials, which are covered by Chapter 4731.
