Each state in the United States has one or more programs designed to
ensure its citizens benefit from appropriate use of radiation and
radioactive material and environmental radioactive material.
States have been regulating radiation producing machines and their
use for more than 40 years. Under the Atomic Energy Act and
its revisions, 37 states have agreements with the Nuclear Regulatory
Commission to regulate many radioactive isotopes produced in the
nuclear fuel cycle and some of the source material that is used in
the nuclear fuel cycle.
Below is a map of all Radiation Control Programs in the United
States. To view information of any state, you may click on the
thumbtack on that states capital, or you can chose the state desired
from the drop down menus below the map. Each balloon links to
email and website info for each program.
