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.

In this video, ITER Safety Control Section Leader Lina Rodriguez-Rodrigo explains what the DAC files are about and why their completion marks an important moment in the life of our project.
