The Radiation Control Program (Agency) of Massachusetts Department of Public Health has adopted regulations in 105 CMR 120.200 which establish standards for your protection against radiation hazards.

In 105 CMR 120.750, the Agency has also established certain provisions for the options of workers engaged in work under the Department license or registration.
