RAM Authorization Applications


 

To establish an authorization, an individual must submit an authorization application and in turn must be approved by the Radiation Safety Committee to become an Authorized User (AU). Once an authorization is established, the AU must submit application amendments in order to make certain changes in the authorization. More information regarding MU EHS' policies regarding the application process can be found on the Authorization Application Review and Approval Policies page. 

This page provides information on when an application is needed and what forms are required for specific changes. You may access the forms using the Rad Forms link to the right. If additional help is needed for filling out each page, refer to How to Fill Out Authorization Application Forms.
