Abstract: This paper describes the background and status of a new International Network on ¿Incorporating Ageing Effects into Probabilistic Safety Assessment¿. JRC IE organized in September 2004 the Network's kickoff meeting in Petten with the aims to open the APSA Network, start discussion of ageing issues in relation to incorporating ageing effects into PSA tools and to come to consensus on work packages, taking into account specific expectations of Network partners. The resulting knowledge should help PSA developers and users to incorporate the effects of equipment ageing into current PSA tools and models, to identify and/or develop most effective corresponding methods, to focus on dominant ageing contributors and components and to promote the use of PSA for ageing management of Nuclear Power Plants.
