About FDA

What routine requirements apply to manufacturers of radiation-emitting electronic products?

All manufacturers of electronic products are required to notify FDA when they discover their product

  • has a radiation safety defect,
  • fails to comply with a performance standard, or
  • is involved in an accidental radiation occurrence.

Manufacturers of some products are required to keep records and submit reports regarding their products’ technical specifications and quality control programs. Manufacturers of some products are also required to submit annual summaries of radiation safety test results.

Additionally, manufacturers of products with a mandatory radiation safety product performance standard are required to certify that their products comply with the requirements of that performance standard.
