In the framework of a study of the proliferation resistance of the MYRRHA Accelerator Driven System, an ADS that is designed at the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre SCK•CEN, several methodologies were applied. These methodologies all showed certain advantages and disadvantages, that will be discussed in this paper. Furthermore some improvements will be proposed that can be implemented in some of these methodologies, in particular in the PR&PP and INPRO methodologies. These include e.g. the incorporation of state level factors as presently under discussion at the IAEA. The application of the methodologies on an attribute basis versus a scenario basis and the possible use for studying several design options (safeguards by design) are also discussed.
