Radiation Safety Committee

The University at Albany's Radiation Safety Committee (RSC) is mandated as a condition of Federal and State licenses for the use of Radioactive Material and Radiation Producing Devices on the University campuses. The RSC has been granted authority by the President of the University and is the governing body for all aspects of radiation protection at the University. The Committee provides oversight of the policies, procedures and responsibilities of University's Radiation Protection Program, which functions through the Radiation Safety Staff and the Office of Environmental Health and Safety.  

The goal of the RSC is to ensure that the University's possession, use and disposition of radioactive sources and radiation complies with all Federal and State Regulations and with the specific conditions of licenses issued to the University, and to ensure the protection of all University personnel, students, visitors, and members of the general public, and the environment regarding the safe use of radioisotopes and radiation.
