Abstract: A benchmarking of current safety assessment approaches (deterministic and probabilistic) has been performed for about 30 research reactor installations in Europe, the USA and South Africa. The results show significant discrepancies in practices for similar types of reactors, mainly due to different regulatory requirements. The results are discussed with a view to identify future improvements on an international level, e.g. in the context of the recently published IAEA Code of Conduct on the Safety of Research Reactors and could form the basis of a future Working Group in the area, trying to find harmonisation areas, together with the European Research Reactor Operators Group (RROG).
