Japanese Government decided that Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute ( JAERI ) and Japan Nuclear Cycle Development Institute ( JNC ) shall be consolidated to a New rganization as of October 2005, which organization would be an Institute for comprehensive research and development for atomic.Through the preparation for unification, JAERI and JNC have been developing the Decommissioning program for own facilities, estimating decommissioning cost and the amount of waste from the decommissioning, and developing Management Program. Planning the Decommissioning program, it is important to estimate decommissioning cost effectively, because JAERI and JNC retain about 230 nuclear facilities which are reactors, fuel cycle facilities and research facilities. Then the decommissioning cost estimation method has developed based on several dismantling and replacement experiences. This method has adopted more estimation fomulae for decommissioning various works than ever, so as to be more reliable. And decommissioning cost for the facilities has estimated under the common condition. This method would be improved, reflecting future nuclear facilities dismantling and replacement events.This paper shows the cost estimation method for nuclear facilities and cost evaluation result for about 230 facilities of both JAERI and JNC.
