Organized in September 1988, the Enforcement
Program conducts inspections and enforces air pol-
lution laws and regulations affecting industries that
are major and technically demanding stationery
sources of air pollution. The Program also adminis-

Radiation Management Administration.

The Community Environmental Services Pro-
gram has been responsible for State asbestos and
noise programs since September 1988. The Pro-
gram enforces air quality standards as they relate to
areas such as asphalt plants, quarries, special medi-
cal waste incinerators, and training for incinerator
operators. The Program responds to all citizen com-
plaints regarding air pollution and coordinates
emergency responses of the Air and Radiation Man-
agement Administration.
Through a departmental reorganization in
1993, divisions of the Industrial Operations Pro-
gram were transferred from the Toxics, Environ-
mental Science and Health Administration to the
Community Environmental Services Program. The
Program now is responsible for four divisions: As-
bestos Licensing and Enforcement; Field Services
and Noise Control; Industrial Hygiene; and Asbes-
tos Accreditation and School Assistance.

James W. Lewis, Administrator
(410) 631-3843

The Industrial Hygiene Division began in 1989 as
the Industrial Operations Program under the Toxics,
Environmental Science and Health Administration of
the Department of the Environment. The Program
was reorganized into a division under the Air and
Radiation Management Administration in 1992 and
was renamed the Industrial Hygiene Division in 1993.
For State agencies and facilities, local schools, and
county health departments, the Division provides
technical consultation on exposure to toxic substances
and support for industrial hygiene. The Division iden-
tifies environmental hazards in State facilities; advises
how to manage and control these hazards; and over-

sees implementation of the programs of the Asbes-
tos Oversight Committee, which is responsible for
the management and removal of asbestos in all
State facilities. The Division also trains and medi-
cally monitors all State employees who routinely
work with asbestos; and helps Maryland schools
comply with federal laws regulating the control of
asbestos in public and private schools.

The Mobile Sources Control Program was formed
in September 1988 to deal with mobile sources of air
pollution. The Program sets standards for motor ve-
hicle emissions and helps administer the Motor Vehicle
Emissions Inspection Program (VEIP).

The Radiological Health Program originated in
1959 as a radiation protection section within the
Department of Health. By 1967, the section had
evolved into the Division of Radiological Health.
When Maryland became a party to the U.S. Nuclear
Regulatory Commission Agreement in 1971, the Di-
vision was reorganized as the Division of Radiation
Control within the Department of Health and Mental
Hygiene. In 1987, the Division became part of the
Department of the Environment and was renamed the
Center for Radiological Health. In 1989, the Center
was reorganized as the Radiological Health Program
under the Toxics, Environmental Science and Health
Administration. Restructured in 1992, the Program
was placed under the Air and Radiation Management
In accordance with the Maryland Radiation Act,
the Program regulates all radiation sources in the
State. This responsibility includes licensing, regis-
tration, and enforcement of regulations that cover
both ionizing and nonionizing radiation sources,
by-product material, and limited quantities of spe-
cial nuclear material. The Program also establishes
requirements for persons engaged in the business of
testing for radon (Code Environment Article, secs.
8-101 through 8-601).

The Radiation Control Advisory Board originated
