Briefwisseling houdende een verdrag tussen de Regering van het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden en het Internationaal Agentschap voor Atoomenergie (IAEA) betreffende de cursus inzake de beveiliging van reactoren voor kernonderzoek, te Delft van 26 juni – 7 juli 2006
Vienna, 18 April 2006
I have the honour to inform you that the International Atomic Energy Agency (hereinafter referred to as the IAEA) is planning to organize a Regional Training Course on the Security of Nuclear Research Reactors in June 2006.
From informal discussions held between the Office of Nuclear Security (NSNS), Department of Nuclear Safety and Security, the Ministry of Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment (VROM), the Reactor Institute, Delft and the Permanent Mission of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the IAEA, we understand that the Government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands would be willing to host the training course and that suitable premises and facilities could be made available in the Kingdom of the Netherlands for the course.
I have the honour to enquire whether your Government would agree to make the following arrangements:
?The Government will accord to the IAEA, its property, funds and assets, and to the officials of the IAEA, lecturers, and participants officially designated to attend the training course in their official capacities, and to observers, the privileges and immunities contained in the Agreement on the Privileges and Immunities of the IAEA which was accepted by the Government on 29 Augus 1963.
?The Government will accord to the officials of the IAEA, lecturers, the participants mentioned above and to the observers every facility necessary for the performance of their functions in connection with the training course, including entering, remaining in 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. The IAEA will inform the Government promptly of all persons officially designated to attend the training course. The IAEA will also advise such persons to apply for visas, if required, in good time before the opening date of the training course, and the Government is expected to issue such visas promptly so as to allow participants to attend the training course.
?The Government will facilitate customs formalities for those persons on entering and leaving the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
?The Government will make available to the IAEA without charge, and for the entire duration of the training course, adequate premises and facilities.
?The Government will exercise reasonable care to ensure security on the premises in which the training course takes place and to ensure the safety of the officials of the IAEA and participants while on the premises where the course will take place. 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.
I enclose for your information a list of Member States of the IAEA to be invited to nominate participants for the training course as Annex A and a list of administrative and technical requirements as Annex B.
Should your Government agree to host the training course in question, I would be grateful if your Government would designate a representative to facilitate liaison between the IAEA and the Government in connection with the course. The course location and date will be decided through discussion with the designated host organization. Mr. D. Ek, (NSNS), has been appointed Scientific Secretary of the training course. Ms. Julie Zellinger, Divison of Conference and Document Services will provide the administrative organization.
I would be grateful to receive, in writing, your Government’s agreement on the above enumerated points by mid April 2006 so as to enable the Secretariat to proceed with timely arrangements.
Accept, Sir, the assurances of my highest consideration.
