The BEMUSE (Best Estimate Methods – Uncertainty and Sensitivity Evaluation) Programme – promoted by the Working Group on Analysis and Management of Accidents (WGAMA) and endorsed by the Committee on the Safety of Nuclear Installations (CSNI) – represents an important step towards reliable application of high-quality best-estimate and uncertainty and sensitivity evaluation methods. The methods used in this activity are considered to be mature for application, including licensing processes. Skill, experience and knowledge of the users about the applied suitable computer code as well as the used uncertainty method are important for the quality of the results.
