C.Journeau (WP6 MCCI leader) and J.P. Van Dorsselaere (SARNET2 coordinator) have attended the final workshop of the FP7 ASAMPSA2 project on best-practice guidelines on Level 2 Probabilistic Safety Assessment (PSA2), coordinated by E.Raimond (IRSN). This workshop was hosted by Fortum (Finland) in Helsinki from 7 to 9 March. The status of R&D on the most important issues has been discussed on the basis of SARNET knowledge: it was concluded that no major points on R&D were missing in the Guidelines, but nevertheless the SARNET2 MT will send suggestions for update or reformulation of some parts of the text. These guidelines, to be released after summer 2011, will be used as inputs by the SARP group. A possible follow-up of the ASAMPSA2 project has been discussed. Some subjects could still reinforce the strong links with SARNET2.
