In several institutes, research and development for an accelerator-driven transmutation system have been progressed. Ferritic/martensitic steels are the candidate material for the beam window. To obtain the irradiation data, the PIE work of the SINQ target irradiation program (STIP) specimens was carried out at JAEA. In this study, the results of PIE on F82H and its welded joint will be reported. The tensile tests were performed for F82H EB and TIG welded specimens. The results indicate that all specimens kept its ductility after 10 dpa irradiation and fractured in ductile manner. The fatigue life of F82H base metal is almost the same as that of unirradiated specimens. Though the number of specimen is limited, the fatigue life of F82H EB (15mm and 3.3mm) welded joints seems to increase after irradiation. The fracture surfaces of the specimens showed transgranular morphology. While F82H TIG welded specimens were not fractured by 10$$^{7}$$ cycles.
