Radiation Safety Committee

The Radiation Safety Committee (RSC) oversees the possession, use, and disposal of all radioactive material used for research, clinical, instructional, and service purposes within Boston University (BU), Boston Medical Center (BMC), and its affiliates.

About the Committee

The RSC has overall responsibility for the development and recommendation of comprehensive polices and guidelines for the safe use of all sources of radiation, including all clinical and research uses of radioactive materials and all ionizing and non-ionizing radiation-generating devices. As such, the RSC is charged to provide general review and audit of radiation safety programs at BU and BMC, to determine compliance with regulations and licenses issued on the local, state, and federal levels. The directives are carried out by BU Environmental Health & Safety.
