Since it is important to have an objective basis from which to determine the current position in the assay of fissile material, IRMM runs an external quality control programme, called REIMEP. The present paper summarises the experience gained over almost ten years, and describes the major features of the programme, which currently focuses on the key materials of the nuclear fuel cycle: UF(6), UO(2) pellets, UO(2) powder, uranyl nitrate solution, spent fuel solution, plutonium nitrate solution, PuO(2) powder and U/Pu mixed oxide pellets. An extension to environmental matrices is planned.
