Activated Corrosion Products (ACPs) will be present in the various coolant loops of ITER: in-vessel and vacuum vessel, test blanket modules, auxiliary heating or diagnostic equipments. ACPs impact occupational exposure, routine effluents to the environment, and potential releases during accidents. Hence, the ACP inventory evaluation is an important task for ITER public and occupational safety. PACTITER v3.3 code is a computational tool derived from PACTOLE series of codes, modified in some modeling and computing capabilities. ITER Organization has included it as reference computer code for the ACP assessment. In the framework of its verification and validation activity, PACTITER v3.3 was used to assess the ACP inventory of the ITER Neutral Beam Injectors (NBIs) Primary Heat Transfer System (PHTS). This paper will document the preliminary results of this assessment, focusing on the impact of operation scenarios parameters (i.e. water chemistry, materials corrosion properties, etc.) and piping architecture.
