Compliance Clock

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and recent institution, local, state and federal orders, the UAB Office of Radiation Safety is granting a thirty (30) day extension for submitting your radioactive materials inventory. Whether to extend or terminate the extension will be re-evaluated at the end of the thirty-day period.

Though compliance to all orders and directives is encouraged, you must ensure that all radioactive materials are always secured from unauthorized access and appropriately shielded as required.
