ARRT’s Code of Ethics is one of our profession’s most important documents. It outlines the professional behaviors to which imaging and radiation therapy professionals aspire.
ARRT investigated nearly 2,000 ethics violations in 2016, and only 36 cases (2 percent) resulted in revocation. If you think you’ve committed an ethics violation, be sure to let us know. It’s much better to report an issue than to try to hide it. Learn more.
Under a new policy, you may now schedule and sit for ARRT exams—even if you’re under an ARRT ethics review.
If you violate one of ARRT’s Rules of Ethics, you must let us know within 30 days of the event or at your annual renewal, whichever comes first.
Until now, ARRT has allowed R.T.s to use newly earned credentials to satisfy their biennial CE requirements. We’ve changed this rule for R.T.s whose biennia start on or after Jan. 1, 2018. Learn more.
If you’re seeking an ARRT credential using our postprimary pathway—or planning to do so—be aware of changes in our structured education requirement. Learn more.
The annual cost of renewing your first ARRT credential is increasing slightly for 2018.

Although most respondents agreed with the proposals, a few proposed changes caused some controversy. Here’s a recap of why we proposed those changes and how they will—and won’t—affect you.
