Is there an exemption or "grandparenting" for equipment currently in use?

Policy Guidance Help System logo

No. The final regulations do not include any "grandparenting" provisions for using non-conforming x-ray equipment that does not meet the regulations after the effective dates. You should note that not all equipment and/or equipment quality control requirements become effective on the same date. Equipment that meets all effective requirements may be used until any requirements that it does not meet actually go into effect.
