(1) The licensee shall perform radiation surveys with an operable radiation survey instrument calibrated as provided in Rule 64E-5.615, F.A.C., to ensure that the maximum radiation levels and average radiation levels from the surface of the main source safe with the source(s) in the shielded position do not exceed the levels stated in the Sealed Source and Device Registry.
(2) The licensee shall make the survey specified in subsection 64E-5.644(1), F.A.C., at the installation of a new source and following repairs to the source(s) shielding, the source(s) driving unit, or other electronic or mechanical component that could expose the source, reduce the shielding around the source(s), or compromise the radiation safety of the unit or the source(s).

(a) The date of the measurements;
(b) The manufacturer's name, model number and serial number of the treatment unit, source, and instrument used to measure radiation levels;
(c) Each dose rate measured around the source while the unit is in the off position and the average of all measurements; and
(d) The signature of the RSO or authorized medical physicist who performed the test.
