Health Physics Questions and Answers - Question 7

Question 7: Relative to 10 CFR 20.1101, radiationprotection programs, what would a typical radiographylicensee have to do beyond what that licensee is doing now?

Answer: Ensure that the program was documented and reviewthe program's content and implementation periodically (atleast annually). (See Regulatory Guide 10.6 for additionalinformation). If the licensee does not have a radiationprotection program, then such a program must be developed.
