Abstract: Nuclear safety in Europe is one of European Union's primary concerns, therefore the European Union decided to take a prominent role to help the countries of Central and Eastern Europe to ensure the safety of their nuclear reactors. The SENUF ( Safety of Eastern type Nuclear Facilities) network, as a new European initiative integrated into the JRC/IE's existing nuclear safety related SAFELIFE action, was established in 2003 to facilitate the harmonization of safety cultures and operational practices across the EU countries and at that time Candidate Countries. One of the first safety related areas subject to SENUF benchmarking was the Organizational Schemes, Advanced Methods and Strategies for Maintenance Optimization. The current paper discusses the results from this benchmarking study and elaborates on the lessons learnt which help to further specify the relevant JRC research and development activities to support the on-going maintenance optimization processes at the Nuclear Power Plants in EU.
