This article presents the methodology developed to generate and use dosimeter covariances and to estimate nuisance parameters for the PETALE experimental programme. In anticipation of the final experimental results, this work investigates the consideration of these experimental correlations in the Bayesian assimilation process on nuclear data. Results show that the assimilation of a given set of dosimeters provides a strong constraint on some of the posterior reaction rate predictions of the
