Please see announcement from the Colorado X-Ray Certification Unit below per 11.4.2020 e-mail:

Radiation machines and facilities that were due for a certification evaluation, as per Section 2.5 of the Regulations, during the months of March, April, May and June of 2020 were granted a 6-month extension to complete that evaluation earlier this year. 

The department recognizes that COVID-19 cases are again on the rise.

As a result, the 6 month extension will be granted for those machines that are due through the end of the calendar year.  Our website has been updated with the new information on this exemption.  

  • Please note: Mammography units still must follow FDA requirements. 

We will continue to monitor the ability to complete these inspection certification evaluations safely.  Please contact the X-ray Certification unit if there are any questions regarding these extensions or if there are additional concerns related to compliance efforts and complications due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

We are committed to working with the regulated community to find a path forward to maintain compliance, protect the health of all individuals involved, and to minimize the spread of the virus.

We can be reached by phone on the technical assistance line: 303-692-3448 or via email at    

Thank you for your continued hard work throughout this difficult year.
