Official recognition as a Non-Governmental Organization in Official Relations with the of The United Nations was granted in 1967 in acknowledgement of the Society's work and its co-operation with the World Health Organization. As a result of this, the ISRRT is rostered with the ECOSC (Economic and Social Council) of the United Nations for appropriate meetings.

To promote further exchange of information, Regional Conferences were have been held in each of the three years between World Congresses from 1992 to 2001. since 1962. Commencing in 2002 a World Congress will be held once every two years. The important role of the ISRRT in education led to the first International Teachers Seminar being held in 1966. These Seminars and Workshops Conferences are organised as required, particularly in developing countries. parts of the world with held in countries nominated by the Council, and take place in the years between the World Congresses.
