Packing up the ITER construction files.
Last Thursday, the documents that comprise the "Permis de Construire", the formal request of the ITER Organization to build the fusion test facility, was signed, packed and finally sent off to the French regulatory authorities.

The documents had been updated and augmented since their first submission in September 2007 in accordance with the Direction Départementale de l'Equipement (DDE) and the recommendations made by Mission ITER, the Agence ITER France, Jacobs Engineering, 2Y Architecture (T. Raynal) for buildings, and the Atelier ALEP (P. Deliau and L. Fraisse) for the landscape.
