The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has, over the years, developed numerous radiation protection, dose assessment, and emergency response computer codes. These codes are used by NRC staff, other U.S. federal agencies, NRC’s Agreement States, licensees, and international partners.

RAMP was established as an integrated NRC program to prioritize, maintain and update all of the NRC’s radiation protection codes, control distribution of the codes to users outside of the NRC, and maintain user forums in which users may discuss the use of the codes and seek answers to specific problems that they may encounter with the codes.

Currently, the RAMP user group has over 700 members and partners domestically and internationally.

You can learn more about the different RAMP membership types when you create an account.
