The SQAWG working group usually meets four times a year, twice by videoconference and twice in person. Sitting up front is Pavel Chaïka, from the Russian Domestic Agency.
The ITER Organization-Domestic Agency Safety and Quality Assurance Working Group (SQAWG) held its 13th meeting on 30-31 March in Cadarache.

Bringing together representatives from the ITER Organization and the Domestic Agencies, the SQAWG was established in 2008 to provide a channel of communication and forum for discussion with the ITER Domestic Agencies 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 Deputy Director-General Carlos Alejaldre of the Safety, Quality & Security Department included a workshop on the Manufacturing and Inspection Plan (MIP) with a case study on a pressure vessel; presentations by all Domestic Agencies on the way they control their supply chain; a presentation by ITER staff on the status of licensing process; procurement documentation exchange between ITER, the Domestic Agencies and contractors; and finally, the nuclear safety control system quality plan.
