    To make fitness, safety and lifetime related assessments for class 1 nuclear piping, the amount of necessary input data is considerable. At the same time it is essential that the data is reliable and up-to-date. Often it has to be collected in a very short time. This paper outlines the contents of the database system, consisting of separate geometrical, material, loading and reference document databases, which is being developed by TVO and VTT. The system is developed to facilitate the analyses of class 1 piping and generation of the associated documentation.
