Excellency,

I have the honour to refer to my letter to the Permanent Mission of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Vienna dated 16 May 2022, which opened negotiations between the IAEA and the Government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands (hereinafter referred to as “the Government”) on an Agreement to be concluded between the IAEA and the Government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, relating to a Workshop on the Use of International Generic Ageing Lessons Learned (IGALL) in Preparation for Long Term Operation (hereinafter referred to as “event”).

As regards the outcome of the negotiations, I have the honour to propose the following:

The event will be held from 15 to 17 November 2022 in Petten, the Netherlands.

The purpose of the event is to train experts from nuclear power plants and technical support organizations in the use of IGALL project tools and related databases in support of ageing management and long-term operation.

The event will be conducted in English.

Approximately 40 participants from the Member States and Organizations listed in Annex A are expected to attend, as well as a representative from the IAEA.

Informal discussions held with Mr Robert Krivanek from the NRG have indicated that suitable premises and facilities could be made available in Petten, The Netherlands.

The Government will make the following arrangements:

  • 1. The Agreement on the Privileges and Immunities of the International Atomic Energy Agency (“the Agreement”), which was accepted by the Government on 29 August 1963 shall be applicable in respect of the event. In particular, officials of the IAEA participating in, or performing functions in connection with, the event shall enjoy the privileges and immunities provided under Articles VI and IX of the Agreement. Representatives of States shall enjoy the privileges and immunities accorded under Article V of the Agreement. Experts invited by the IAEA to attend the event shall enjoy the privileges and immunities accorded under Article VII of the Agreement. The property, funds and assets of the IAEA associated with the event shall enjoy the privileges and immunities accorded under Article III of the Agreement.

  • 2. The Government will accord to the persons mentioned in paragraph 1 above every facility necessary for the performance of their functions in connection with the event, including entering, remaining and leaving the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The Government will issue any necessary visas as expeditiously as possible and, where the legislation of the Kingdom of the Netherlands permits, free of charge. The Government, however, reserves the right to deny, irrespective of nationality, visas to individual participants for national security reasons. Annex A contains the list of Member States and Organizations to be invited to participate in the event.

    The IAEA will inform the Government promptly of all persons officially designated to attend the event. The IAEA will also advise such persons to apply for visas, if necessary, in good time before the opening date of the event, and the Government is expected to issue such visas promptly so as to allow them to attend the event.

  • 3. The Government will facilitate customs formalities for the persons mentioned in paragraph 1 above when they enter and leave the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

  • 4. The Government will, at no cost to the IAEA, make adequate and appropriate premises, personnel and facilities available for the entire duration of the event as listed in Annex B.

  • 5. The Government will exercise reasonable care to ensure security on the premises where the event takes place and to ensure the safety of the persons mentioned in paragraph 1 above while they are on those premises. The Government will take whatever steps may be reasonable in the circumstances to ensure such security and safety, including such supervision of the premises as may be warranted.

Mr Martin Marchena of the Division of Nuclear Installation Safety has been appointed Scientific Secretary of the event. Ms Yuliya Palka of the Division of Nuclear Installation Safety will be responsible for the administrative organization of the event.

Should your Government wish to host this event, I would be grateful if you would inform me in writing of your Government’s agreement to the above-enumerated points by 7 September 2022 so as to enable the Secretariat to proceed with timely arrangements.

Accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.
