A radiologic technologist qualified under the interim regulations using the expired qualification route based on experience performing mammography. He/she stopped working as a technologist in August 1996, but now wishes to work again in mammography.

The technologist never obtained the specific training in mammography required by October 1, 1996, under FDA's interim regulations. Under FDA's final regulations, is the technologist exempt from the new requirements for initial mammography training?

No. If the technologist has not obtained the specific training in mammography required by the interim regulations by the effective date of the final regulations, (April 28, 1999), he/she must meet the new requirements for initial mammography training (900.12(a)(2)(ii)(A)(B)(C)).
