Computer Program Service (CPS) E-Newsletter

No. 32, February 2007


The co-operative arrangement between US-DOE and the OECD/NEA concerning the exchange of computer codes and nuclear data has now been implemented both at the Radiation Shielding Information Computational Center (RSICC) and the NEA Data Bank. The computer codes and associated data libraries released by RSICC will once again be distributed by the NEA Data Bank.

We all look forward to a renewed and strong co-operation with RSICC.


Starting March 2007, we have been asked to identify end-users of the packages we distribute (the end-user is the person who will be using the software in your establishment). We also need a statement on the applications/reasons for which this information will be used. From now on, requesters must provide this information at the time they place the request.
