This paper presents the results of sensitivity studies aiming to assess the impact of AISI 316 ITER structural materials compositon on the activation characteristics of the in-vessel components. The influence of the protective layer material, namely beryllium, carbon fibre composite, and tungsten, is also anlaysed and discussed. The ANITA-2 and the FISPACT-3 activation codes are used, with updated cross sections and decay data libraries based on EAF-3 evaluation files. The 1D-Sn XSDRNPM-S transport code, using the 171 group VITAMIN-C library based on EFF-2 data, is used to produce the flux-weighted spectrum needed for the activation calculations. The outline design of ITER defined in the Fourth Meeting of the Technology Advisory Committee is considered for the assessment.
