ABSTRACT
The article presents an overview on International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) decision to implement several activities on engineering and management practices for improving the economic performance of nuclear power plants in the U.S. Most of these activities are being integrated within the IAEA Division of Nuclear Power. An essential element for the implementation and maintenance of standard nuclear economic performance indicators will be the framework, standardization and knowledge of the nuclear plant cost data and the standard definitions that have been incorporated into the NEPIS and EUCG Nuclear Committee economic databases.
