on the Use of Data Distributed from the IRPhE Project
Authors and their establishments must be consulted if an organisation

Data are provided on the understanding that the agreement of the
originating establishment shall be obtained before a service is offered
involving sale or use on a fee-paying basis of any data set distributed
within the IRPhE Project. This restriction applies also to modified
versions of such data.
Transfer of data to a user in a given establishment confers only the
right to use the data within that organisation: in particular, copies
of data should not be distributed to persons outside their own
establishment; users in other centres should contact IRPhEP management
directly in order to obtain copies.
Data are provided by the IRPhE Project on the understanding that
whenever the use of the data results in a publication (in a journal,
conference proceedings, laboratory report, book etc.), the IRPhE
Handbook and the authors and laboratory of origin of the data shall be
acknowledged in the publication.
The evaluations made available contain the data, i.e. the detailed
geometry data and the detailed fuel data of specific experimental
facilities. These data are guaranteed to be applicable only to
the specific experimental program compiled. In other words, they
are not effective for any other experimental programs performed in the

This applies also to non-Member countries and Organisations that have
contributed to the distributed information.
