In order to facilitate the coordination between the ITER Organization and the Domestic Agencies, especially in view of the new era of ITER construction, a high-level ITER Organization-Domestic Agency Coordination Meeting has recently been created. It will supervise and complement the regular ITER Organization-Domestic Agency meeting. This new management tool will enhance the relationship between the seven Domestic Agencies and the ITER Organization and enable quick and concrete decision-making.  

The high-level coordination meeting (IHCM) is composed of the Heads of the seven Domestic Agencies plus one additional representative designated by the Domestic Agency head, the ITER Director-General and the Deputy Director-General for the ITER Project Department. It is chaired by the Director-General, who can invite additional observers or experts upon request.  Decisions shall be made by the Director General based on input from the Domestic Agencies.

The first IHCM meeting was held in Daejeon, Korea, during the recent IAEA conference. The next IHCM will convene this week on 29 October in Cadarache immediately after the meeting of the Management Advisory Committee (MAC). The IHCM will be normally held during the regular ITER Organization-Domestic Agency meetings.
