Learn how to open, amend, renew, or deactivate a Radioisotope Use Application (RUA).
Submit a Radioisotope Use Authorization (RUA) application form and attachments to Environment, Health & Safety (EH&S).
Note: RUA applications must be received 1 week prior to the Radiation Safety Committee (RSC) meeting. Otherwise, applications will be deferred until the next regularly scheduled meeting.
RUAs must be renewed 1 year after initial approval. An EH&S health physicist will contact the PI when it is time for renewal.
Deactivate the RUA when your lab closes or research no longer involves radioactive material.
The RUA can be reactivated if research with radioactive materials resumes.
