RESRAD has been applied to over 300 sites in the U.S. and other countries.
EPA Science Advisory Board reviewed the RESRAD model. EPA used RESRAD in their rulemaking on radiation site cleanup regulations.

RESRAD code has been verified and has undergone several benchmarking analyses, and has been included in the IAEA's VAMP and BIOMOVS II projects to compare environmental transport models.

RESRAD training workshops have been held at DOE, NRC, and EPA headquarters and Regional offices; about 800 people have been trained at these workshops.
