The aim of this study is a review of a fast reactor in-service inspection practice. The two CEC contracts were each divided into two parts; one consisted of a review, techniques and procedures in inert gas and the second covered primary circuit structures immersed in sodium. In the first contract, questionnaires were distributed to organizations thought to have the relevant experience in the above fields and visits were arranged. In the second contract, the scope of this study is extended by additional visits. Conclusions are drawn from the various visits and recommendations proceeding from the studies made are listed.
