The Department of Health is responsible for regulating radiation and radioactive materials in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Although the Department's Radiation Control Program primarily focuses on radiation in medical equipment, this legislation also addresses regulations, permits, and inspections pertaining to radiation and radioactive materials more generally.
