The ITER Council
The work of the ITER Organization is supervised by its top body, the ITER Council, which has the authority to appoint senior staff, amend regulations, decide on budgeting issues, and allow additional states or organizations to participate in ITER.
The ITER Council comprises four representatives per ITER Member. The Chair and Vice-Chair of the Council are elected from amongst the Members and can hold office for up to four years. Meetings are held at least twice a year; a communiqué is issued to the press after each meeting.
The Council is supported by two advisory bodies that come together prior to each ITER Council meeting.
