Welcome to the Advocacy Committee section of the OSRT website. We are always looking for fellow technologists to serve on our committee. If you are interested in volunteering, contact the Advocacy Committee.
The Advocacy Committee serves several purposes for the OSRT and technologists in Ohio. We:
Take the OSRT’s position on all proposed legislation/regulation and practice issues pertinent to the profession.
Advocate for federal minimum standard legislation.
Maintain contact with key state and national representatives on all activities pertinent to the profession.
Send representatives to Ohio Medical Board meetings.
Provide testimony as needed on proposed legislation/regulation and practice issues pertinent to the profession
Some of our interactions with the Ohio Department of Health include attending RAC, REC, and Radioactive Materials Committee meetings. Upcoming meetings can be found on the Calendar.
The Radiation Advisory Council (RAC) was established in accordance with section 3748.20 of the Ohio Revised Code. Members of the Radiation Advisory Council are appointed by the governor for five year terms.
Duties of the council include:
Advising and consulting with the director on the development of rules.
Advising and consulting with the director in the development of inspection criteria, procedures and guidelines to be used in the radiation control program.
The council establishes committees to focus on specific components of the radiation control program and the rules developed in accordance with Chapter 3748 of the Ohio Revised Code.
There are currently two committees: the Radiation-Generating Equipment Committee (REC) and the Radioactive Materials Committee.For questions related to advocacy and health policy issues, contact OSRT's Advocacy Committee.
