Radiation-Emitting Products

I have a masters (or higher) degree specifically in physics. Do I still need to document my number of semester hours in physics?

If the degree is stated to be specifically in physics (or any of its sub-specialties), it will routinely be accepted during inspections as adequate documentation of the required number of semester hours in physics. Therefore, during routine inspections, you will not need to provide detailed transcripts to all the facilities where you provide physics services.

If the degree was stated to be in the more general term, physical science, or in one of the three non-physics categories of physical science (chemistry, radiation science, or engineering), you will have to provide additional documentation demonstrating compliance with the appropriate requirement for semester hours in physics.
