The IO-DA Safety and Quality Assurance Working Group (SQAWG) held its 13th meeting on 30-31 March in Cadarache.
Bringing together representatives from the ITER Organization (IO) and the Domestic Agencies (DAs), the SQAWG was established in 2008 to provide a channel of communication and forum for discussion with the ITER DAs in regards to safety and quality assurance concerns.

The working group usually meets four times a year, twice by videoconference and twice in person.

The agenda of the two-day meeting chaired by DDG Carlos Alejaldre of the Safety, Quality and Security Department included a workshop on the Manufacturing and Inspection Plan (MIP) with a case study on a pressure vessel; presentations by all DAs on the way they control their supply chain; a presentation by IO staff on the status of licensing process; procurement documentation exchange between the IO, DAs and contractors; and finally, the Nuclear Safety Control System quality plan.
