Integrated Nuclear Fuel Cycle Information System

The IAEA operates a number of nuclear fuel cycle related databases and a simulation system for long-term projections of nuclear fuel cycle material and service requirements.

Their purpose is to provide Member States, the IAEA, and public users with current, consistent, and readily accessible information for planning activities related to the nuclear fuel cycle.

Integrated Nuclear Fuel Cycle Information Systems (iNFCIS) is a web based platform which hosts a number of nuclear fuel cycle related databases and simulation systems. It hosts databases Nuclear Fuel Cycle Information System (NFCIS), World Distribution of Uranium Deposits (UDEPO), Post Irradiation Examination Facilities Database (PIEDB) and Minor Actinide Property Database (MADB).

It also hosts Nuclear Fuel Cycle Simulation System (NFCSS) which is a web based calculation tool to estimate long term nuclear fuel cycle material and service requirements. All of those databases and simulation systems are accessible through iNFCIS web site.

Quality LevelExplanation of Terms
  • Authoritative: All information in the resource has been verified by authorities as indicated.
  • Quality-checked: All information in the resource has been quality-checked as indicated.
  • Not quality-checked: Although the information in the resource may come from peer-reviewed journals or other high-quality sources, it has not undergone subsequent quality checking before incorporation in the resource.
: INFCIS is a system of five databases: NFCIS, UDEPO, PIE, NFCSS and MADB. The listing for each says how comprehensive, authoritative and updated it is.
CompletenessExplanation of Terms
  • Comprehensive:The resource includes all items in the category for which the resource was created.
  • Selective: The resource includes only selected items in the category for which the resource was created, with the process or basis for the selection as indicated.
: INFCIS is a system of five databases: NFCIS, UDEPO, PIE, NFCSS and MADB. The listing for each says how comprehensive, authoritative and updated it is.
Update FrequencyExplanation of Terms
  • Updated continually: A conscientious effort is made to add new information immediately and keep the resource up-to-date on a day-by-day basis.
  • Updated periodically: The resource is updated on a schedule. Common values are monthly, quarterly, annually or biennially, but others are also used.
  • Updated occasionally: The resource is updated now and then, but not on a schedule.
  • Static: The resource is a one-off creation with no plans for updates, or a resource that was updated in the past but has now been frozen with no new input planned.
: INFCIS is a system of five databases: NFCIS, UDEPO, PIE, NFCSS and MADB. The listing for each says how comprehensive, authoritative and updated it is.
