Abstract: In 2009 the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (US NRC) together with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) initiated the "International Forum on Reactor Ageing Management (IFRAM)". The aim of the forum is to consolidate the present knowledge on ageing management (AM) and long term operation (LTO) of commercial NPPs, identify open gaps and prioritize and even conduct the necessary R&D work to fill these gaps. IFRAM is seeking to share knowledge and data and to avoid duplication of work since human and financial resources for AM/LTO are limited. IFRAM should be an international forum with members from Asia, America and Europe and all common commercial nuclear reactor types around the world should be represented. An Asian Engagement workshop was held successfully in Seoul from 11th - 13th October 2009 to bring together Asian nuclear organisations & research institutes and US NRC & PNNL to further discuss the idea of IFRAM. The Asian Engagement workshop was followed by the European Engagement workshop held in Petten, the Netherlands from 25th - 27th May 2010 and hosted by JRC-IE. Similar to the Asian Engagement workshop the aim of the European Engagement workshop was to bring together European nuclear organisations & research institutes and US NRC & PNNL to further discuss the idea of IFRAM and open scientific / technical issues on AM/LTO. The European Engagement workshop was held successfully and this EUR report summarizes the presentations given by the workshop participants and the outcome of the two discussion sessions, i.e. establishment & benefits of IFRAM and scientific / technical issues on AM/LTO 60 years+ of NPPs.
