The board will examine and consider a complete repeal and replacement of Chapter 1 through 3.

CHAPTER 1: The Medical Radiation Technology Licensing Rules
STATUTORY AUTHORITY: 32 M.R.S.A. §9853(6)(E)
PURPOSE: These rules cover the licensing, examination, and conduct of all persons who apply ionizing radiation to human beings for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes, except those specifically exempted by statute. Licensure eligibility, examination requirements, and fees are included in these rules. Provisions may be added pertinent to the staff review of applications. The Board may repeal existing fee provisions in the event that OLR establishes fees for this board directly pursuant to 10 M.R.S.A. §8003(2-A)(D) and Chapter 10 of the rules of the Office of Licensing and Registration. It may also substitute “Bone Densitometry” for “Absorptiometry” in the Definitions Section.

AFFECTED PARTIES: Applicants for licensure.
CONSENSUS-BASED RULE DEVELOPMENT: Not expected.
