As a general question ref MRMS.

I am not sure if it is considered an operational product at this point?
We are testing the output for possible inclusion with some mission critical
apps in support of power generation plants/nuclear emergency response.

Has it been formally adopted into the suite of operationally supported
applications of NCEP/NWS?  If so, is there mechanism, that when we see
issues, such as erroneous data/artifacts  we can report that ?
