A large number of different radiological assessment models exist which vary in structure and degree of sophistication depending on the purpose for which they are designed. In this paper the various applications of environmental transfer models are outlined and the differences between models for present day releases and releases from radioactive waste disposal are highlighted. The second part of the paper addresses the uncertainties associated with both types of assessment. It is concluded that the long timescales involved are the major contribution to the overall uncertainty in the prediction of consequences of releases from a waste repository. Ideas are presented for tackling this problem.
