Abstract
The aim of this paper is to present the activities carried out by NEA Data Bank on checking,processing and verification of JEFF-3.3T4 covariances. A picture of the completeness and status of the JEFF-3.3T4 covariances is addressed. The verification of JEFF-3.3T4 covariances is performed with nuclear data sensitivity tool providing the keff uncertainty as a function of the contributing nuclide-reaction pairings including cross-reaction covariances. A total number of 4501 ICSBEP benchmarks is used in this analysis. This exercise is also extended to covariance libraries such as JENDL-4.0 updated files, ENDF/B-VII.1, SCALE-6.2rev8 and ENDF/B-VIII.0b5, allowing comparison of these results with both the experimental criticality benchmark and different methodologies of evaluation
