Developers and users of passive neutron assay instruments together with national and international inspectorates have conducted a three day workshop on the passive neutron assay of plutonium. The workshop has reviewed the current status of passive neutron assay and made recommendations for further development efforts. Basic technology topics included radionuclides nuclear data, shift register based instruments, multiplicity counters, HRGS measurements, uncertainty propagation models and performance evaluations of various instruments and techniques. Particular reference has been made to ESARDA NDA performance values and IAEA international target values. The measurement sessions have been performed on the well characterised PuO(2) and MOX PERLA standards.
