A new version of the ENDF/B library has been planned. The first step in producing this new library is evaluating the neutron standards. An evaluation is now underway with support from a Data Development Project of the IAEA. In addition to the neutron cross section standards, new evaluations are being done for prompt fission neutron spectra and a number of reference data. E orts have been made to handle uncertainties in a proper way for these evaluations.
