The Washington State Department of Health (DOH), Radiation Protection Branch regulates the use of x-ray devices in the state of Washington. Regulations for installation and use of x-ray generating equipment can be found in the Washington Administrative Codes (WAC) concerning radiation protection WAC 246-225. Copies of these regulations (and licenses) are available for review at the Environmental Health and Safety Department, Radiation Safety Office at Hall Health Center.

The WAC regulations give certain rights and responsibilities to employees. These can be found in the University of Washington Radiation Safety Manual.  Copies of this form are available at Radiation Safety and may be posted at all facilities where x-rays are used.
