The activities of the ENEA have been focused on the production of atomic data relevant to impurity behavior in magnetic confinement fusion devices. Rates for ionization, radiative recombination and dielectronic recombination have been critically reviewed and missing data have been extrapolated from literature. This work has been done for all the elements up to germanium and also for krypton and molybdenum.

For the dielectronic recombination rates a simple formula with unique exponential factor is used for all the given elements. This allows impurity transport modellers to update the atomic package without modifying the underlying code by only changing the numerical coefficients used in the formulae.
