The aim of this study was to analyse and compare the quality assurance requirements and measures for selected mechanical components of LMFBR plants under construction or in operation in EC member countries. Various areas of analysis and comparison were selected to identify the underlying concepts of grading of requirements and measures, to identify the similarities and differences, and to provide recommendations for further actions concerning quality assurance requirements. It is concluded that a further harmonisation of quality assurance system requirements applicable to nuclear power plants is not necessary, but a homogenisation of the technical acceptance criteria of the basic industrial standards such as DIN/AD/KTA, NF/RCC-MR, UNI and BS is required as a prerequisite for the manufacture of components of equal quality and for the realisation of a common European LMFBR project.
