The Radiation Safety Office (RSO), a research compliance unit under the direction of the Radiation Safety Committee (RSC), provides research guidance and regulatory-mandated support of academic activities involving the use of sources of ionizing and non-ionizing radiation at LSU.

The evaluation and approval of radiation use application may take up to 8 weeks after receiving a complete application packet.  Authorization demanding construction, regulatory assessment, or review of the Institutional Review Board may require additional time to allow for the process.

The turnaround time for processing and receiving radiation monitoring devices is typically 7-10 business days after receiving a complete application form. Please plan your application submission accordingly.
