NRPP is run by a board of directors and is overseen by the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST), which helps keep NRPP up-to-date while ensuring their function and integrity. AARST members vote on board members from different areas of the radon field.

NRSB is an independent, volunteer-based organization modeled on the American Board of Health Physics. It is run by a certification panel of roughly seven to ten people from different sides of the radon industry, including state government and home inspectors.
