2 nd RCM-FENDL-3, 23 March 2010, Vienna Page 27 The IO works towards finalizing a full set of baseline documents by the end April (scope, schedule, cost); Scope is set in Schedule agreed as working basis in March 2010; Resource loading of IPS for the IO is ongoing; The acceptance of the ITER baseline towards a commonly agreed upon schedule is a huge step forward, since every party is committed to a common plan. What is Next?

2 nd RCM-FENDL-3, 23 March 2010, Vienna Page 31 Summary It took almost four years to re-baseline ITER and have a common understanding of the real cost of ITER. In the parties and for the IO. The baseline decision by Council in June 2010 will set the real trigger for all countries to now move at the same pace. We still have lots of things to improve, technically, managerially and also in interfacing with industry partners.
2 nd RCM-FENDL-3, 23 March 2010, Vienna Page 32 ITER Licensing Process Accordance with French regulations ITER is a “basic nuclear facility” (Installation Nucléaire de Base, INB) e.g. labs, fuel plants, not fission reactors. Compliance with international standards of safety (IAEA) Licensing process: –Safety options report submitted and reviewed 2002 –Series of informal technical meetings with the authorities (ASN) and their technical advisors (IRSN), 2006 – –License application documents were submitted January 2008 Request for authorisation (Demande d’Autorisation de Création, DAC), including Impact Study Preliminary Safety Report (Rapport Préliminaire de Sûreté, RPrS) Examination of files submitted in January 2008 –Authorities (ASN & IRSN) reviewed our files for acceptability –In July 2008, they requested detailed additional information in the files –DAC and RPrS are now being updated, for re-submission in 2010 Next: Public Enquiry. Then examination by panel of independent experts (Groupe Permanent) to advise ASN.
2 nd RCM-FENDL-3, 23 March 2010, Vienna Page 33 Current status (October 2009) All RPrS chapters and Impact Study are in first draft –Some require completion with the outcome of safety analyses in progress, or design information from baseline documents to be fixed Many annexe documents completed –Translation into French under way Reviews of RPrS to be held October – December, by technical ROs, Safety Control Division (“second level” check), and in review including external experts - English version to be finalized by end of 2009 Translation in French and final checking –Submission expected end of February 2010 Should lead to issue of decree allowing “creation” of facility. –Further processes will follow to obtain authorisation for commissioning and start-up.
