Based on essential background and relevant information on IAEA documents and activities, concept of PSA implementation for RRs as well as the use of PSA in Risk Informed Decision Making (RIDM) processes is explained. JRC-IE research reactors safety database in addressing topical issues when harmonising safety assessment of RRs and RIDM is discussed.
