Safety first

Myriam Jacobs

Two months ago, in late March, a fundamental document was completed by the ITER Organization and sent to the French Minister of Economy and to the Minister of Environment and Sustained Development. The 5,243-page "DAC files"—for Demande d'Autorisation de Création or Request for Creation—provides a detailed description of the ITER installation, an updated preliminary safety report (RPrS) and other required items that are crucial for the licencing process of the installation.
