Fourteen long-lived activation cross sections at 14.8 MeV have been measured using the FNS facility in order to provide experimental data meeting the requirement in the radioactive wastes disposal assessment in the D-T fusion reactor. The measurements were conducted under the JAERI/USDOE collaborative program on fusion neutronics. Measured data were compared with data available in the literature and discussed in terms of accuracy requirements.
