Abstract

A LIST OF 1987 TARGET VALUES FOR ACHIEVABLE UNCERTAINTY COMPONENTS IN FISSILE ISOTOPE AND ELEMENT ASSAY HAS EVOLVED FROM DISCUSSIONS WITHIN THE ESARDA WORKING GROUP ON TECHNIQUES AND STANDARDS FOR DESTRUCTIVE ANALYSIS, THE INMM COMMITTEE ON ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY LABORATORY MEASUREMENTS CONTROL AND THE INMM COMMITTEE ON MASS SPECTROMETRY MEASUREMENT CONTROL. IT UPDATES THE LIST OF 1983 TARGET VALUES ON THE BASIS OF THE EXPERIENCE GATHERED IN USING THE CONCEPT. THE ESTIMATES LISTED IN THIS REPORT EVOLVED FROM A CONFRONTATION OF EXISTING EXPERIMENTAL EVIDENCE WITH SAFEGUARD REQUIREMENTS. TWO EXAMPLES ILLUSTRATED THIS POINT: 1) THERMAL IONISATION MASS SPECTROMETRY OF PLUTONIUM IN SOLUTIONS OF SPENT FUELS; 2) ISOTOPE DILUTION MASS SPECTROMETRY OF PLUTONIOM IN SOLUTIONS OF SPENT FUEL. THE PAPER CONCLUDED THAT THE 1983 TARGET VALUES FOR UNCERTAINTY COMPONENTS IN FISSILE ISOTOPE AND ELEMENT ASSAY' WERE EFFECTIVELY USED WITH BENEFIT IN SAFEGUARD VERIFICATION. THE 1987 LIST REFLECTS IMPROVEMENTS IN ROUTINE ACCOUNTANCY AND VERIFICATION MEASUREMENTS.
