Assistant Legal Adviser Anna Tyler hands directors Pamela (Agence Iter France), Motojima (ITER Organization) and Mazière (CEA-Cadarache) the documents awaiting their signature.
Meetings of the Site Support Agreement (SSA) Liaison Committee provide the ITER Organization, Agence Iter France and the CEA with a precious opportunity to discuss pending issues, exchange information and, as happened on Friday 8 July, sign various agreements pertaining to the daily life of the project.

While the three neighbours and partners meet regularly to discuss on an informal basis, the SSA Liaison Committee had not convened since December 2010.

In his opening statement, Director-General Osamu Motojima renewed his appreciation for "all the services provided to ITER by CEA-Cadarache and Agence Iter France (AIF)" and brought his French counterparts up to date on the latest information pertaining to the ongoing assessment of the situation in Japan. Mr Motojima reaffirmed that his target was to limit any schedule slippage due to the damage suffered by the Japanese Domestic Agency's installations in Naka to one year.

On the French side, Jérôme Pamela, director of AIF, announced that a new managing director in charge of the ITER Itinerary had just been appointed. It will be Pierre-Marie Delpanque's mission to interface with all French authorities involved in the organization of the convoys.

The three directors also signed four different Agreements—one to make the ITER Headquarter worksite available to AIF; another to use FLS (the security services of CEA-Cadarache) on the ITER construction site; a third granting ITER the use of two buildings on the CEA site and a fourth consisting of a financial appendix to the Support Agreement.
