Today, Monday, 21 July, scientists and engineers from the ITER Organization and the Domestic Agencies have come together for a two day meeting in Cadarache to elaborate and finally freeze the design of the ITER Vacuum Vessel. "This review is very important as in regards to the vessel's safety class components and as for its many interfaces with other systems", Gary Johnson, Deputy Director General, responsible for the ITER Tokamak, said in his introductory remarks.

"Also", he stressed, "the vessel procurement is critical for the overall project schedule."
