After the Chernobyl accident, the German government demanded to do every ten years safety reevaluations of nuclear power plants. Although the BER II is only a small research reactor, we are also obliged to prepare a safety revision for our reactor. Because this was not done for a research reactor yet, the requirements and methods were quite unclear.

Therefore, our first step was to establish a structure of a safety analysis and to describe the planned work for each item. This proposal was then submitted to our authorities and approved by them. After that we started the safety reevaluation according to this proposal. The work will be finished in 2003. Thus, in this paper, the work, which has been done and the results, which we have gained so far, will be presented.
