A license to possess and use radioactive material has been issued to the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) by the California Department of Health Services. It is a "Type A Broad Scope" license, which allows for the considerable flexibility required at a dynamic research center such as Caltech. As such, it requires Caltech to maintain a well-managed and documented radiation protection program to ensure that radioactive materials are used safely.
