Register X-Ray Machines

Any business or individual who possesses an X-ray-producing machine must register the machine with DHEC within 30 days of acquiring the machine.

You are also required to notify DHEC any time you sell or get rid of a registered X-ray machine.

Use this form to register a machine or delete a machine from our registration list:

Moving Machine to New Location? Notify DHEC

If your facility moves an X-Ray machine from one address to another location owned by the same person or people, the owner(s) must simply inform DHEC of the relocation in writing and provide the new location address. You will not need to re-register the machine or pay an additional application fee. (However, if applicable, a new shielding plan must be submitted to and accepted by DHEC prior to the move.)

If you are opening an additional or satellite facility, you must complete a facility registration approval request form and submit the application fee. (If applicable, a new shielding plan must be submitted to and accepted by DHEC prior to installation of equipment.)
