Reciprocity Program

Licensees who hold a valid radioactive materials license from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission or an Agreement State may be granted reciprocity to conduct licensed activities in Ohio.  The requirement is to submit the reciprocity application form, HEA5522, and a copy of the radioactive materials license possessed by the applicant. Licensees will be invoiced the fee listed in Appendix A of 3701:1-38-02(N). Reciprocity requests require submittal of an application a minimum of three days prior to conducting work.

Reciprocity is granted for a total of 180 days in a calendar year. All reciprocity authorizations expire on December 31.  It is the responsibility of the licensee to re-apply each year prior to commencement of work activity. The licensee agrees to provide three day advance notification of work location and duration to the Bureau of Environmental Health and Radiation Protection. Licensees may be inspected under reciprocity; inspections are invoiced in accordance with Ohio Administrative Code rule 3701:1-38-02(H).

The Reciprocity FAQ provides additional information about reciprocity authorizations.
