N.J. Admin. Code § 7:28-17.2 - Definitions

Current through Register Vol. 54, No. 7, April 4, 2022

The following words and terms, when used in this subchapter, shall have the following meanings, unless the context clearly indicates otherwise:

"Cabinet x-ray system" means an ionizing radiation-producing machine with the x-ray tube installed in an enclosure which, independent of existing architectural structures except the floor on which it may be placed, is intended to contain at least that portion of a material being irradiated, provide radiation attenuation, and exclude personnel from its interior during generation of x-radiation, including but not limited to all x-ray systems designed primarily for the inspection of carry-on baggage at air, railroad, and bus terminals, and similar facilities, and all x-ray systems designed primarily for the inspection of letters, periodicals, and packages in mailrooms. An x-ray tube used within a shielded part of a building or x-ray equipment which may temporarily or occasionally incorporate portable shielding, is not considered a cabinet x-ray system.

"External surface" means the outside surface of the cabinet x-ray system, including the high-voltage generator, doors, access panels, latches, control knobs, and other permanently mounted hardware and including the plane across any aperture or port.

"Industrial radiography" means the examination of the macroscopic structure of materials by nondestructive methods using sources of radiation.

"Portable x-ray bomb detection equipment" means a portable x-ray system used exclusively for examining packages or devices suspected to contain explosive or incendiary materials or weapons of mass destruction.

"Shielded room radiography" means industrial radiography which is conducted in an enclosed room, the interior of which is not occupied during radiographic operations.

"Temporary job site" means any location where industrial radiography is performed other than the location(s) listed in a registration issued by the Department pursuant to N.J.A.C. 7:28-3.
