Abstract: Assistance programmes from the European Commission (EC) to Russian Design Nuclear Power Plants has been established since 1991 through the TACIS and PHARE programmes. The TACIS and PHARE nuclear safety programmes are focused on reactor safety issues, contributing to the improvement in the safety of Russian designed reactors and providing technology and safety culture transfer. In Nuclear Safety, the countries mainly concerned are Russia, Ukraine, Armenia, and Kazakhstan for the TACIS programme, and Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovak Republic, Lithuania, Romania and Slovenia for the PHARE programme. The main parts of these programmes are related to the On-Site Assistance and to the Design Safety of VVVER and RBMK NPPs where In Service Inspection of the primary circuit components are addressed. This paper gives an update of the TACIS and PHARE projects dealing with Non Destructive Testing and In-Service Inspection of VVER and RBMK NPPs, such as for training and qualification for the In- Service Inspection for Russian Design Nuclear Power Plants and In-Service Inspection tools for RBMK fuel channels and VVER reactor pressure vessel. It details the main objectives and the results obtained, assessing the achievements and summarising the open issues.
