X-Ray Registration Application

New facility applications are completed online at least 30 days prior to handling the equipment, after creating an account in the ODH Gateway as a new Gateway user.  Registrations are not transferrable. If adding additional equipment to your registration, a new application is not required. If you experience any problems with the ODH Gateway or have questions regarding your user ID or password, please contact ODH X-ray Registration at (614) 995-4727 or e-mail

Possession of X-ray equipment, in storage or rendered inoperable requires a valid registration.

To apply online the following four items are required:

  1. Gateway Access (E-mail address required)
  2. IRS 147C, CP 575 or SS-4 tax identification verification letter          
    1. If you do not have your IRS tax identification letter available, call IRS at 1-800-829-4933 and request your “Tax Identification Verification 147C letter” and have the IRS FAX the letter to you.  This process will take 1-2 minutes (W-9s WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.)
      The official name on the tax verification letter is the “Registrant Name” to be entered on the Application. The Tax ID# on the tax letter is the tax number to be entered on the Application.
  3. Scan/Upload capability or electronic file of IRS tax identification letter is required to complete the application request
