METRI project focused both on probabilistic safety assessment (PSA) methodology and its applications, especially in multi-criteria decision-making situations where PSA results are combined with other, deterministic criteria to select an optimal decision alternative. The project has promoted the use of risk-informed approaches by developing methods for PSA qualification and expert panels to support risk-informed decision-making. Application areas are optimisation of in-service inspections, risk-informed safety classification of systems and components, reliability of advanced passive systems. The main topics concerning PSA methodology were model uncertainties and human reliability analyses.
