Proposal for a Council decision amending Council Decision of 16 December 1980 setting up the consultative committee for the fusion programme (presented by the Commission) COM(2005) 68 final

Funded under: FP6-EURATOM

Abstract

The study of fusion by magnetic confinement is one of the fields of research in nuclear energy referred to Article 4 of the Treaty establishing the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom). By successive Council Decisions since the Initial Research and Training Programme of the Euratom in 1958, the Community fusion programme is intended to embrace all the work carried out in the field of controlled thermonuclear fusion by magnetic confinement, in the Member States and in the third Countries fully associated with Euratom.
By virtue of Article 7(4) of the Euratom Treaty, the Commission shall ensure that the fusion programme is carried out. For the purposes of implementing the fusion programme, the Commission is assisted by a consultative committee.
A consultative committee (CCFP) was set up pursuant to Article 4 of Council Decision 4151/81 ATO 103 of 16 December 1980, which also defined the committee�s rules of procedure including in particular a weighted voting system as stipulated in article 14 thereof. By referring to the above Council Decision of 1980, the consultative committee was re-established by successive Council Decisions adopting the specific programmes of research and training of Euratom. The CCFP was renamed CCE-FU on 17/11/1999, when it adopted its own rules of procedure, pursuant to Article 12 of the Council Decision of 16 December 1980.
