The development and verification of future GEN IV Reactor Systems is strongly related to materials data and correlated design codes. These systems are high temperature and/or corrosive media exposed. Expensive and extensive materials test programmes have to be launched because materials data which guarantee safe design does not yet exist for the selected materials. The costs of these extensive materials test programmes seem to be too high that they could be invested by one single GIF partner. Therefore a very important issue is data exchange between the partners to save costs and time. Within the web-enabled Mat-DB of JRC Petten an XML (eXtensible Mark-up Language) related data entry part has been installed to ease exchange of experimental materials data. This XML structure will be presented in the following as an initiative to define an internationally agreed, standardised XML schema which can be integrated in the overall MatML schema. Furthermore integrated analysis routines are implemented in the Mat-DB data retrieval part. These tools allow extra- and interpolations to calculate strain limits which are the basis for calculating safety limits against creep failure. Those safety limits are necessary elements for establishing design codes of GEN IV Reactor Systems.
