Radiation Protection Programs

DEP's Bureau of Radiation Protection directs the statewide radiation protection program with the goal of protecting the citizens of the Commonwealth from unnecessary exposure to radiation. This includes policy, technical, and fiscal management for the program areas of: radioactive material, radiation producing machines, radon, nuclear safety, low-level radioactive waste, emergency response, and decommissioning and environmental surveillance. The office ensures central and regional staff communicate uniformly and implement and effectively support statewide program activities such as licensing, registration, certification and inspections.
