How to Create a New Radiation Use Authorization (RUA)
Each packet includes:
- Completed RUA application form that includes the Table for Requested Radioactive Material (RD-111: RAM .zip file) or Table for Requested Radiation Producing Machine (RD-113: RPM .zip file)
- Standard Operating Procedure (SOP), for Radioactive Materials or Radiation Producing Machines, for each experimental procedure that you wish to perform.
- A Radiation User Information Form - Completed for each person to be added to the RUA. You will need a CalNet ID to complete this form. (LBNL employees who wish to work with ionizing radiation at UC Berkeley facilities can obtain a CalNet ID at https://commons.lbl.gov/display/itdivision/UCB+Identities.)
Along with the packet above, make sure you complete a Recharge Authorization Form.
An approved RUA is required before purchasing or using any source of ionizing radiation. Submit your completed forms to firstname.lastname@example.org. A Radiation Safety staff member will contact you concerning your application and will work with you to gain approval of your project.
