Nuclear data users’ requirements for uncertainty data started already in the seventies, when several fast reactor projects did use extensively “statistical data adjustments” to meet data improvement for core and shielding design. However, it was only ∼20–30 years later that a major effort started to produce scientifically based covariance data and in particular since ∼2005. Most work has been done since then with spectacular achievements and enhanced understanding both of the uncertainty evaluation process and of the data utilization in V&V. This paper summarizes some key developments and still open challenges.
