The NEA Data Bank operates a computer program service related to Nuclear Energy Applications. The software library collects programs and upon receipt of requests from users, compiles and verifies them in an appropriate computer environment ensuring that the computer program package is complete and adequately documented. The material is then distributed to users in NEA countries. This collection of tested material contains more than 1500 packages and is used by over five hundred organisations.

A co-operative arrangement in this field has been established with the USDOE and the IAEA.
