It is a requirement  that all radio isotopes and machines such as x-ray machines are registered with the RPO and put on the license subject to authorisation. This should be done during the purchase of such materials and machines, any materials or machines in UCC that are not on the license should be reported to the RPO for licensing and not used until authorised. Please contact the RPO in the event of new purchases or any changes in licensing requirements.
