In the framework of the C-BORD project of the H2020 programme to provide a safety chain for container inspection at border control points, CEA-DAM is involved to develop an identification method of Special Nuclear Material. Using active interrogation the main purpose is to specifically discriminate fissile actinides from fertile ones through the detection of γ-rays emitted by very short-lived isomers. We present here the interdependance of such a project with nuclear data. We first introduce the SNM identification method. Then, will be detailed the needs in nuclear data and first yields of specific short-lived isomers of 252Cf spontaneous fission. Perspectives and conclusions will end the article.
