An IAEA Consultants Group has examined the neutron cross section database for possible new standards and extensions in energy of existing standards. This effort has led to an update of the 1991 NEANDC/INDC Nuclear Standards File to indicate the status and extension of cross section standards for the 10-B(n,alpha) reaction in the energy region below 20 MeV; and H(n,n) and the fission cross sections for 235-U, 238-U and Bi for the energy range 20-350 MeV. For the fission standards, numerical tabulations are also given. The objective of this work is to provide concise and readily usable reference guidelines for essential nuclear standard quantities for a variety of basic and applied endeavours.
