Art.5.3 3. At least after every second blowdown the TAC shall decide whether the blowdown and measurement conditions have concurred with the general descriptions of the experiments in the agreement and whether the information achieved is complete enough to be useful or if the experiments should be repeated. This decision shall be communicated to the board members immediately
Art.7.1 1. During the project, the contracting parties shall, within the total budget, contribute to the project staff by supplying project personnel, along the lines specified in Appendix C: p 4.
