This subsequent arrangement concerns a proposed Joint Determination by the Government of the United States of America and the Government of the Republic of Korea pursuant to Article VIII(C) of the Agreement, that the provisions of Article XI of the Agreement may be effectively applied for the alteration in form or content of U.S.-origin nuclear material irradiated in pressurized water reactors, CANDU reactors, and a research reactor, at the Post Irradiation Examination Facility (PIEF), the Irradiated Material Examination Facility (IMEF), the Radio Isotope Production Area (RIPA), and the DUPIC Fuel Development Facility (DFDF), along with identified analytical laboratories, at the Headquarters of the Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI), in accordance with the plans contained in the documents KAERI/AR-1003/2013, “Post-Irradiation Examination and R&D Programs Using Irradiated Fuels at KAERI,” dated August 2013, and KAERI/AR-1004/2013, “DUPIC Fuel Fabrication Using Spent PWR Fuel at KAERI,” dated August 2013. These facilities are found acceptable to both parties pursuant to Article VIII(C) of the Agreement for the sole purpose of alteration in form or content of irradiated U.S.-origin nuclear material for post-irradiation examination and for research, development and manufacture of DUPIC fuel powders, pellets and elements for the period beginning on the date of entry into force of an agreement extending the terms of the Agreement beyond March 19, 2014, and ending on the earlier of March 19, 2016, or the date of entry into force of a successor agreement to the Agreement, unless terminated earlier by written agreement of the Parties to the Agreement. Any activities additional to the plans or changes in the equipment in these facilities will be reviewed by both parties to ensure the general consistency with the scope and objectives of the Joint Determination.
