radiation symbol X-ray Program - Registration & Fees

All x-ray facilities in Nebraska must be registered  with the Nebraska Department of  Health and Human Services, Division of Public Health, Office of Radiological Health.    Regulations for the "Control of Radiation"  PDF File180 NAC 2-004 ( PDF File180 NAC 21-004 for a intra oral and cephlometric dental facilities) require that each person having a radiation generating equipment facility apply for registration of the facility.  This is to be done within 30 days following the start of facility operation.   The application for registration is completed on form NRH-4 "Application for Registration of Radiation Generating Equipment." 

The Program will issue a "Certificate of Registration" once it is determined that the applicant meets the requirement of the regulations and the annual fee is paid. 

Each registration will expire annually on the anniversary of the date issued.  Once a facility has a "Certificate of Registration" a NRH-4 with the information available in our database will be sent to a facility for verification along will a bill for the annual fee for the facility. 

A registrant must notify the Agency in writing within 30 days of any change which would render the information contained in the application for registration no longer accurate.
