The delegation of responsibility was formalized on Monday 21 February with the signature of a convention by ITER Director-General Osamu Motojima (right) and Agence Iter France Director Jérôme Pamela.
Although the ITER site remains the property of the CEA, it
was made available last July to the ITER Organization.

The ITER Organization now holds "full rights" to the land and buildings and will retain them for the duration of the ITER Agreement—that is, until 24 October 2042.

For a transitionary period that will end on 31 December 2011, the ITER Organization has delegated the overall management of the site to Agence Iter France. Agence Iter France is responsible for implementing regulations regarding health and security and managing general logistics, access control, protection of the environment, waste, etc.

This delegation, based on an exchange of letters between ITER Organization and Agence Iter France management, was formalized on Monday 21 February with the signature of a convention by ITER Director-General Osamu Motojima and Agence Iter France Director Jérôme Pamela.

By the time the convention ends, the ITER Organization and the European Domestic Agency Fusion for Energy (F4E) will have chosen a contractor to take over current Agence Iter France responsibilities.
