Virginia Administrative Code
Title 12. Health
Agency 5. Department of Health
Chapter 481. Virginia Radiation Protection Regulations

12VAC5-481-100. Records.

A. Each licensee and registrant shall maintain records showing the receipt, transfer, and disposal of all sources of radiation as follows:

1. As long as the material is possessed and for three years following transfer or disposition of the radioactive material.

2. Until the agency terminates the license for the licensee who transferred the material.

3. Until the agency terminates the license for the licensee who disposes the material.

B. If radioactive material is combined or mixed with other licensed material and subsequently treated in a manner that makes direct correlation of a receipt record with a transfer, export, or disposition record impossible, the licensee may use evaluative techniques (such as first-in-first-out) to make the records that are required by this section account for 100% of the material received.

C. Additional record requirements are specified elsewhere in these regulations. If the record retention period is not specified, the record shall be maintained for a period of three years.
