The Texas Department of State Health Services, Radiation Control Program, has the important mission to protect and promote the physical and environmental health of the people of Texas. We strive to prevent unnecessary radiation exposure to the public through effective licensing, registration, inspection, enforcement, and emergency response.
We carry out our mission efficiently, effectively, and professionally with respect and dedication to all Texans.
"We welcome your questions and comments concerning our efforts
to protect the citizens of Texas and the environment."
