The European Commission, DG XII, has published a report entitled "Probalistic accident consequence assessment codes - Second international comparison". In 1991 the European Commission, in cooperation with the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA), initiated a study to compare the predictions of probalistic consequence assessment (PCA) codes. These codes are used in level 3 probalistic safety analyses (PSA) and are concerned with the estimation of the health and environmental risks form postulated accidents at nuclear installations. The results of the study include: - A detailed technical report which is intended for specialists in PCA and which contains the detailed results of the study; - An overview report; - A report intended for PCA code users and specialists which contains the multiple users of the same code.
