The Advocacy Committee serves several purposes for the OSRT and technologists in Ohio. We:

  • 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 concerning the administration, implementation and enforcement of Chapter 3748 of the Ohio Revised Code.
  • 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 This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Human Research Using X-rays

Recently the Bureau of Radiation Protection has been contacted regarding the use of x-rays in human research. Be aware that the Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) does not allow for any person to be “exposed to the useful beam except the patient for dental or medical radiologic procedures and unless such exposure has been authorized by a licensed practitioner within his or her scope of practice.” SeeOAC rule 3701:1-66-02(B)

Questions regarding rule 3701:1-66-02 or the prohibition of exposing a person to x-rays within authorization from a licensed practitioner should be directed to This email address is being protected from spambots.
