Benchmark problem based on Japanese Post Irradiation Experiment (PIE) data was analyzed by Japanese burnup analysis code and French one under the cooperative research program between the Japanese University Association (JUA) in Japan and Commissariat a l’Enegie Atomique (CEA) in France. Significant discrepancies over 10% were found between the Japanese and French results for 238Pu, 243Am, 244Cm, 123Sb, l54Eu, 134Cs and l44Ce. It is supposed that the difference of C/E for 243Am and 244Cm between Japanese results and French ones is due to the (n, gamma) reaction of 242mAm. For 125Sb and 154Eu, the C/E values are improved by using new cross section and fission yield libraries.
