Abstract: This paper describes a new initiative to address the compatibility and use of the Proliferation Resistance and Physical Protection (PR&PP) evaluation methodology developed by Generation IV International Forum (GIF) and the Assessment Methodology developed within the IAEA International Project on Innovative Nuclear Reactors and Fuel Cycles (INPRO), starting with proliferation resistance. The objective is to fully understand and articulate the range of applicability and the potential for synergy in their application. ¿Proliferation resistance¿ evaluation is in its early stages, and on-going efforts to use the methodologies to assess particular fuel cycles or facilities will shed further light on what proliferation resistance means, how best it can be assessed, and their value to policy-makers, facility designers and users of nuclear facilities. The authors of this paper report on the status of progress on this effort, particularly with regard to the respective objectives, analysis approaches, input requirements, form of results and end uses. The views expressed herein are those of the authors, and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Department of Energy or its laboratories, the IAEA, Atomic Energy of Canada Limited, or the European Commission-Joint Research Center.
