The first week of July, representatives of the ITER Organization and the Domestic Agencies attended the 4th meeting of the RAMI* & Standardization Board. After Cadarache and Gandhinagar, India, this meeting was sponsored by the Japanese Domestic Agency and held in the Naka Fusion Institute, home of the JT60 tokamak, with remote participation from India and the ITER Headquarters in France.

The attendants reviewed the progress of the RAMI analyses of the ITER plant systems. Fully 14 analyses having been completed, 4 are currently being performed, and 13 remain to be done before end of 2010. All participants agreed on the crucial importance of the involvement of the Domestic Agencies and renewed their support for the updated ITER RAMI analysis program.

In addition to the RAMI, the Board worked on the definition of a standardization process that aims to reduce the cost of constructing, operating and maintaining the machine while improving its availability for the experimental program. A draft Standardization Work Plan was prepared for a shortlist of selected major components to be analyzed in priority by dedicated expert working groups.

The Board concluded its meeting with a strong commitment from each attending party to continue supporting all RAMI and standardization activities to ensure that ITER meets its operational objectives and highlights the way towards fusion energy.
