The Expert Group on Burnup Credit Criticality Safety (EGBUC) of Working Party of Nuclear Criticality Safety (WPNCS) under the Nuclear Science Committee (NSC) of OECD/NEA has been assessing the accuracy of the burnup calculation code systems by organizing several international benchmarks. This Phase IIIC benchmark specification for BWR 9 by 9 type fuel assembly infinite two-dimensional model was proposed and approved in the meeting of the OECD/NEA/NSC/WPNCS Expert group on burnup credit criticality safety in September 2012 and distributed in October 2012 to the members of the WPNCS. We have set of thirty-five calculation results from sixteen institutes of nine countries. This report presents the results of the benchmark phase IIIC. By this benchmark results, we can confirm the certain progress of the burnup calculation capability than the time of Phase IIIB benchmark. The difference of the neutron multiplication factor generated by the difference of the burnup calculation results by the latest code systems is less than 3%.
