The proposed rule of the Department of Health and Social Services would amend regulations under 16 DAC 4465 to revise requirements for health physicists and medical physicists seeking to register as radiation services providers. The rule also would add requirements for use of high-energy radiation machines to perform industrial radiography. In addition, the rule would clarify circumstances under which radiation service providers may be cited for violations of requirements for application, service delivery, or failure to report certain information to clients. Our comments must be submitted to the Delaware agency no later than Dec. 2, 2019.
