N.J. Admin. Code § 7:28-21.7 - Analytical x-ray equipment with a high voltage supply that cannot operate at potentials above 16 kilovolts

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

(a) No person shall use an analytical x-ray unit with a high voltage supply that cannot operate at potentials above 16 kilovolts or cause it to be used unless the following requirements are met:
1. The analytical x-ray unit is registered with the Department pursuant to 7:28-3.1;
2. The registrant has had a qualified individual perform a radiation safety survey of the analytical x-ray unit and has had the qualified individual prepare and submit a report of the results of the survey to the registrant. The survey shall be performed when the analytical x-ray unit is first capable of producing radiation and before the analytical x-ray unit is used for any purpose other than installation, assembly, or the conducting of radiation surveys; and
3. The registrant shall submit a copy of the radiation survey report to the Department within 30 days after the date of the survey, and shall maintain the radiation survey report at the analytical x-ray facility for review by the Department during an inspection. The registrant shall retain the radiation survey report in compliance with N.J.A.C. 7:28-8.
(b) The registrant shall not use an analytical x-ray unit with a high voltage supply that cannot operate at potentials above 16 kilovolts or cause it to be used when the unit has been moved to a location different from that identified in the initial radiation survey report or after any modifications have been made in the equipment that may compromise radiation shielding integrity, unless the following conditions are met:
1. The registrant has had a qualified individual perform a radiation safety survey of the analytical x-ray unit and has had the qualified individual prepare and submit a report of the results of the survey to the registrant. The survey shall be performed when the analytical x-ray unit is first capable of producing radiation and before the analytical x-ray unit is used for any purpose other than installation, assembly, or the conducting of radiation surveys; and
2. The registrant shall submit a copy of the radiation survey report to the Department within 30 days after the date of the survey, and shall maintain the radiation survey report at the analytical x-ray facility for review by the Department during an inspection. The registrant shall retain the radiation survey report in compliance with N.J.A.C. 7:28-8.
(c) If the results of the radiation survey required by (a)2 and (b)1 above reveal that there are no radiation levels above 0.1 mR/hr when measured at all locations five centimeters from any accessible surface of the specific analytical x-ray unit, then this analytical x-ray unit is exempt from the requirements of 7:28-21.3, 21.4, 21.5 and 21.6(a)3.
