Device Registration

Registration Forms, Fees and Process

Currently the state of Oregon registers over 12,000 x-ray machines of various types. Inspections are done routinely every one to four years depending on the type of services provided.

The X-ray program has the overall responsibility for registering electronic radiation producing devices and vendor licensing throughout the state of Oregon. This program has the responsibility for the safe use of electronic radiation products in the work place. This is accomplished through tracking devices via the registration program, periodic on-site facility inspections and through public education programs.

Oregon Administrative Rules (OAR) 333-101 requires registration of X-ray machines.
