Expert Alain Mailliat presents the conclusions of the special Work Group. Seated next to him are Roger Pizot, the mayor of Saint-Paul-lez-Durance and president of the CLI; Yves Lucchesi, sous-préfet of Aix-en-Provence; ITER DDG Carlos Alejaldre; Joëlle Elbez-Uzan, Head of Nuclear Safety at ITER; and Jérôme Pamela, director of Agence Iter France.
The ITER Local Commission for Information (CLI) convened for its fifth General Assembly this Friday in the Council Room at the Château de Cadarache.

The ITER CLI acts as an interface between the installation's operator and the local population. An independent body, it is composed of representatives from local government, environmental groups, trade unions, businesses, health professionals and nuclear experts.

Alain Mailliat, one of the CLI's nuclear experts, presented the conclusions of the special work group that was established to analyse the 3,200 pages of the DAC files, the official request for authorization to build the ITER installation.

The work group formulated several remarks and asked for additional study of some specific environmental and safety issues. All in all, however, Alain Mailliat acknowledged the "quality and pertinence" of the documents produced by the ITER Organization and the "patience" of the ITER experts in explaining them to the lay public.

"Only through total transparency can we achieve a trusting relationship with you," said ITER Deputy-Director Carlos Alejaldre to the CLI members.
