FINAL ACT
OF THE CONFERENCE OF PLENIPOTENTIARIES FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A FACILITY FOR ANTIPROTON AND ION RESEARCH IN EUROPE
(1) Following discussions on possible future directions for the facilities of the Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung mbH (GSI), the GSI started developing a concept in 2000 for a facility for international antiproton and ion research located at the site of the GSI in Darmstadt.
On the basis of a Conceptual Design Report containing a multitude of scientific and technical contributions from around the world the facility concept was evaluated and endorsed by the German Council of Science and Humanities (Wissenschaftsrat) in 2002.
The decision of the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany in 2003 to establish the proposed facility was followed by the development of a staged construction and science programme.
An International Steering Committee was created. The constituent meeting of the FAIR International Steering Committee took place on 2 February 2004.
For the tracking of the development of science and research programmes, technical design, construction planning, and R&D activities, a working group for scientific and technical issues (STI-FAIR) was established. Another working group for administrative and financial issues (AFI-FAIR) was set up to manage the legal, financial and management structure, procedures and legal documents.
In 2004, a large number of institutions from various countries expressed their interest in participating in or contributing to the future FAIR facility by signing Letters of Intent.
By the end of February 2007 the Governments of Austria, China, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, India, Italy, Poland, Romania, Russia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland had signed a Memorandum of Understanding to provide the basis for international cooperation during the preparatory phase of FAIR.
On 7 November 2007 representatives of ten of the fourteen parties to the Memorandum of Understanding signed the Communique on the Official Launch of the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research in Europe (FAIR), by which they jointly announced the beginning of the realization of the FAIR project.
(2) At the invitation of the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany, a Conference of Plenipotentiaries for the establishment of a Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research in Europe met at Schloss Biebrich in Wiesbaden on 4 October 2010.
(3) Governments of the following countries were represented by delegates: the Republic of Austria, the People's Republic of China, the Republic of Finland, the French Republic, the Federal Republic of Germany, the Hellenic Republic, the Republic of India, the Republic of Italy, the Republic of Poland, Romania, the Russian Federation, the Slovak Republic, the Republic of Slovenia, the Kingdom of Spain, the Kingdom of Sweden and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
(4) The Chairperson of the Conference received from the Plenipotentiaries their Full Powers which he/she examined and recognised to be in correct and proper form.
(5) The Conference took note of the text of the Convention, including its Annex and the four Technical Documents attached, listed as follows:
Annex:                Articles of Association of the
                      "Facility for Antiproton and Ion
                      Research in Europe GmbH" (FAIR GmbH),
Technical Document 1: Description of the FAIR facility to be
                      constructed and the stages of
                      construction (Part A) and The
                      Modularized Start Version – A stepwise
                      approach to the realization of the
                      Facility for Antiproton and Ion
                      Research in Europe (FAIR) (PartB),
Technical Document 2: Detailed breakdown of the construction
                      costs and table showing the estimated
                      annual incidence of expenditure for
                      construction and operation,
Technical Document 3: Map of the site where the FAIR facility
                      is to be constructed,
Technical Document 4: Procedure for the acceptance of in-kind
                      contributions and the related
                      evaluation method.
(6) Upon the recommendation of the FAIR International Steering Committee the Conference adopted the text of the Convention concerning the Construction and Operation of a Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research in Europe including its Annex, which forms an integral part of the Convention.
(7) The Conference agreed that the Convention be applied provisionally pending its entry into force, provided that the provisional application is in line with the national legislation of the Contracting Parties, and, to that end, adopted Resolution No 1 attached to this Final Act.
(8) The Conference agreed that a minimum commitment to contribute towards construction costs of the FAIR facility in cash and/or in kind of 11.87 million euro (in January 2005 prices) will entitle a Contracting Party to designate an appropriate body as a Shareholder of the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research in Europe GmbH. The Conference also agreed that this minimum commitment may be given by several Contracting Parties acting jointly. In such case the appropriate bodies designated by these Contracting Parties will have to form a consortium which will act as their Shareholder in the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research in Europe GmbH. To that end, the Conference adopted Resolution No 2 attached to this Final Act.
(9) The Conference took note of the Declarations of
– the Government of the French Republic,
– the Government of the Republic of Poland,
– the Government of the Republic of Slovenia,
– the Government of the Kingdom of Spain,
– the Government of the Kingdom of Sweden, attached to this Final Act.
(10) The Conference invited all the signatory Governments to complete as soon as possible their constitutional procedures, if any, with a view to the entry into force of the Convention and to inform the depositary Government (Federal Republic of Germany) accordingly.
(11) The Conference noted favourably that other Governments may sign the Convention within the next twelve months under the conditions set out in the Convention.
(12) The Conference invited further Governments to accede to the Convention.
In witness whereof, the Plenipotentiaries have signed this Final Act.
Done at Wiesbaden on 4 October 2010 in the English, French, German, Russian, and Spanish languages, all texts being equally authentic, in a single original, which shall be deposited in the archives of the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany, which shall transmit certified true copies to the Governments having signed this Final Act and to the Governments that become Contracting Parties to the Convention.

NOTES that 11.87 million euro corresponds to 1% of an earlier cost estimate for the construction costs of the FAIR facility as described in Part A of Technical Document 1, attached to the Convention.
DECLARATION OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE FRENCH REPUBLIC WITH REGARD TO THE PROVISIONAL APPLICATION AND TO ITS FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS
THE CONFERENCE
TAKES NOTE of the declaration of the Government of the French Republic, which reads as follows:
In accordance with Resolution No 1 annexed to the Final Act, in which the Contracting Parties agree that the Convention be applied provisionally until it enters into force, provided that the provisional application is in line with the national legislation of the Contracting Parties, France hereby declares that it cannot apply the Convention provisionally from the date of its signature. Article 53 of the Constitution of the French Republic imposes that international treaties and agreements be authorized by Parliament prior to their entry into force when, as it is the case, they carry financial consequences committing the finances of the State.
With respect to the procedure described in Article 6(6) of the Convention, France declares that the French share in the annual operating costs of the FAIR facility will not exceed 2%.
DECLARATION OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF POLAND WITH REGARD TO ITS FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS
THE CONFERENCE
TAKES NOTE of the declaration of the Government of the Republic of Poland, which reads as follows:
The Republic of Poland will take part in the construction of the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research in Europe (FAIR) with an amount of 23.74 million euro (in 2005 prices). This will comprise contributions both in kind and in cash. The spending priority shall be on in-kind contribution, and in-cash contribution shall not exceed 11.87 million euro (in 2005 prices).
DECLARATION OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF SLOVENIA WITH REGARD TO THE PROVISIONAL APPLICATION OF THE CONVENTION
THE CONFERENCE
TAKES NOTE of the declaration of the Government of the Republic of Slovenia, which reads as follows:
Regarding the Resolution No 1, annexed to the Final Act, in which Contracting Parties assume that the Convention can be applied provisionally until the fulfilment of appropriate constitutional procedures in each of the contracting countries, after which it will enter into force, Slovenia hereby declares that it cannot apply the Convention provisionally from the date of its signature.
The Slovenian Law on Foreign Affairs in Article 72 allows for provisional use of an international contract before its entry into force, but only when the ratifying body of this contract is the Government, which does not apply to this Convention, as its ratification is in jurisdiction of the National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia.
DECLARATION OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE KINGDOM OF SPAIN WITH REGARD TO ITS FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS
THE CONFERENCE
TAKES NOTE of the declaration of the Government of the Kingdom of Spain, which reads as follows:
Spain is willing to contribute as a participating state to the establishment and utilisation of the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research in Europe (FAIR). Nevertheless, Spain's obligations, on signing the Convention, shall be as follows:
1. Spain will review its participation in the operational phase two years after the beginning of such phase, and have the option of withdrawing without penalty, provided that it gives one year's notice.
2. Following a positive review, Spain may extend its participation for a further three year period, subject to the corresponding review cycle, and may continue to participate for the whole duration of the project.
3. Should Spain choose to carry on with the project following its first review, it will assume its full liability for decommissioning under the Convention. In the event that a decision to withdraw from participation is made by Spain on the basis of such first review, Spain will only bear fifty percent of its decommissioning liability under the Convention.
DECLARATION OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE KINGDOM OF SWEDEN WITH REGARD TO ITS FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS AND CONFIDENTIALITY
THE CONFERENCE
TAKES NOTE of the declaration of the Government of the Kingdom of Sweden, which reads as follows:
Sweden is willing to contribute as a participating state to the establishment and utilisation of the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research in Europe (FAIR). However,
1. The Swedish authority serving as the Swedish shareholder in the FAIR Company, which will contribute to the construction costs with an amount of 10 million euro (2005 year's prices), will be designated by the Government of the Kingdom of Sweden after parliamentary approval.
2. Sweden's participation in the construction of FAIR would be on the basis that Sweden will participate in the operational phase of FAIR for a minimum period of three years but Sweden will review its continued participation in the operational phase after the first two years and have the option, should it wish to do so following that review, to withdraw without penalty, after giving one year's notice.
3. Following a successful review Sweden may offer to extend its participation for a further three (or five) year period subject to a corresponding review cycle and may continue to participate for the whole life of the project.
4. In the event that Sweden's first review recommends continued participation in the project, Sweden will accept in full its decommissioning liability under the Convention.
Should Sweden decide to withdraw from participation following its first review it will accept liability for fifty per cent of its share of the decommissioning cost under the Convention.
5. Article 19, Confidentiality, in the Articles of Association (Annex to the Convention) should be interpreted as follows in order to meet the requirements of the regulation in the Swedish constitution of the principle of public access to documents:
The Swedish authority serving as the Swedish shareholder in the FAIR Company (FAIR GmbH, based in Germany) shall always consult the conveying Shareholder before taking any decision to grant third parties access to confidential information as defined in Article 19 of the Articles of Association. Sweden is aware that if, after such mandatory consultation, the Shareholder has made it clear that it does not consent to the disclosure of information and, nevertheless, a Swedish authority would disclose the information, Sweden's action would disturb relations between Sweden and the Parties to this Convention.
In this context, Sweden recalls the Swedish Public Access to Information and Secrecy Act 2009, in particular Chapter 15, Section 1, paragraph 1 which reads: "Secrecy shall apply to any information concerning Sweden's relations with another state, or any information otherwise concerning another state, an international organization, or an authority, a citizen, or a legal person in another state, or a stateless person, if it can be assumed that disclosure of the information would disturb Sweden's international relations or would otherwise cause damage to the country."

(2) Družbeniki prav tako podelijo družbi, brezplačno in brez omejitev neizključno in neprenosljivo licenco za uporabo novega znanja in nadaljnjih izpopolnitev, zaščitenih ali ne, s katerimi lahko pravno razpolagajo, in ki so jih dosegli v okviru svojega sodelovanja v družbi.
(3) Vsa intelektualna lastnina, ki jo ustvari osebje, zaposleno pri družbi, je last družbe, razen če ni zajeta v ločenih pogodbah.
(4) Na zahtevo družba družbenikom in javno financiranim raziskovalnim ustanovam, ki so jih ti določili, brezplačno podeli neizključno in neprenosljivo licenco za uporabo svoje intelektualne lastnine za njihove raziskovalne dejavnosti. Za namene, ki niso raziskovalni, se lahko licenca podeli družbenikom pod poštenimi in razumnimi pogoji. Če posamezni družbenik to odobri, lahko družba vsaki fizični ali pravni osebi v državi ali državah tega družbenika podeli licenco pod poštenimi in razumnimi pogoji za druge namene, ki niso raziskovalni, razen kadar svet ne odloči drugače.
(5) Če želi družba pridobiti licenco od tretje osebe za uporabo intelektualne lastnine, si po najboljših močeh prizadeva pridobiti pravico iz take licence do podeljevanja podlicenc družbenikom, kakor je določeno v četrtem odstavku zgoraj.
18. člen
Izumi
(1) V zvezi z izumi osebja družbe družba uporabi pravila nemškega zakona o izumih zaposlenih (Gesetz über Arbeitnehmer- erfindungen – ArbnErfG). Če se družba ne odloči za prijavo patenta v eni ali več državah, lahko s privolitvijo družbe zaposleni, ki je avtor izuma, zaprosi za takšno zaščito v svojem imenu, na svoje stroške in v svojo korist.

Poleg tega družbenik, ki je lastnik pravic, na zahtevo drugega družbenika vsaki fizični ali pravni osebi v državi ali državah družbenikov ne zavrne podelitve licence za namene, ki niso raziskovalni, pod poštenimi in razumnimi pogoji. S pogodbami med posameznimi družbeniki in družbo ali s sklepom sveta se lahko določijo posamezni izumi, glede katerih družbenik ni zavezan podeliti licence družbi, drugim družbenikom ali na zahtevo drugega družbenika vsaki fizični ali pravni osebi v državi tega družbenika.
b) Družba prejme delež neto donosa od vseh licenc, ki jih podeli lastnik pravic za namene, ki niso raziskovalni, pri čemer se omenjeni delež določi ob upoštevanju, koliko sta k izumom prispevala družba in napoteni posameznik.
c) Kadar se vlagajo zahteve za pravice intelektualne lastnine in ob podeljevanju licenc, se ob dvomih družba in družbeniki posvetujejo in vzdržijo dejanj, ki bi škodovala družbi ali družbenikom.
d) Družba je edini lastnik vseh pravic za izume, ki so jih izumili zaposleni, ki jih je družbenik napotil na delo kot del stvarnega vložka za ustanovitev družbe, skupaj z zaposlenimi družbe ali skupaj z zaposlenimi, ki so jih na delo napotili drugi družbeniki kot del stvarnih vložkov za ustanovitev družbe.
e) Skupni izumi napotenih zaposlenih dveh različnih družbenikov pripadajo obema partnerjema, ki se za vsak primer posebej sporazumeta o delitvi in skupnem izkoriščanju izuma. Za takšne izume veljajo določbe pododstavka a).
f) Razen kadar pogodba ne določa drugače, je družba edini lastnik vseh pravic za skupne izume zaposlenih, ki jih je napotil družbenik, in osebja družbe ali zaposlenih, ki jih je na delo napotil drugi družbenik kot del svojega stvarnega vložka za ustanovitev družbe.
(3) V zvezi s skupnimi izumi osebja družbe z osebjem družbenika, ki ni napoteno na delo v družbo, ti izumi pripadajo obema partnerjema, ki se za vsak primer posebej sporazumeta o delitvi in skupnem izkoriščanju izuma. Ta sporazum mora upoštevati določbe iz drugega odstavka.
19. člen
Zaupnost
(1) Družbeniki v odnosu do tretjih strani obravnavajo kot zaupne vse podatke in stvari, ki niso bili objavljeni in ki jih drugi družbenik ali družba pošlje zaupno.

Za razkritje zaupnih podatkov ali stvari se zahteva izrecno pisno soglasje družbenika, ki jih pošlje, ali družbe.
(2) Obveznost zaupnosti iz prvega odstavka ne velja za stvari ali vrste podatkov, ki:
a) jih je družbenik prejemnik razvil ali jih razvija neodvisno od takih podatkov,
b) so del splošno dostopnega stanja tehnike ali ki so dosegli to stanje brez kakršne koli udeležbe družbenika prejemnika,
c) so ob razkritju že v posesti družbenika prejemnika ali
d) jih je družbeniku zakonito razkrila tretja stran, ki jih ima v zakoniti posesti in nima obveznosti ohranjati zaupnost.
(3) Obveznost zaupnosti iz prvega odstavku preneha veljati pet let po dnevu vpisa prenehanja družbe iz trgovinskega registra. Družbeniki naložijo enako obveznost zaupnosti vsem svojim odvisnim družbam in podizvajalcem, zaposlenim in drugemu osebju, ki dela za družbenika in bi lahko imelo dostop do zaupnih podatkov.

(2) Družba je odprta za sprejem novih družbenikov, ki jih imenuje(jo) ustrezna(e) pogodbenica(e). Svet je pristojen za odločanje o pogojih pristopa novih družbenikov.
(3) Če ni v zvezi s povišanjem osnovnega kapitala s svetom dogovorjeno drugače, novi družbenik pridobi DELEŽE ali njihove dele od enega ali več obstoječih družbenikov.
(4) Za pridobitev DELEŽEV ali njihovih delov od obstoječega družbenika se zahteva soglasna odobritev sveta. Taka odobritev se domneva, če je družbenika pridobitelja imenovala ista pogodbenica kakor družbenika(e) odstopnika(e).
(5) Vsaka odločitev o prenosu DELEŽEV ali njihovih delov z vpisom sklepa sveta postane dokončna in izvršni direktorji jo razglasijo.

V teh primerih ta družbenik nima glasovalne pravice pri odločanju o odkupu in se njegovi glasovi ne upoštevajo pri določanju dosežene večine. Kljub temu ima družbenik pravico do udeležbe na ustrezni seji sveta in do utemeljitve pred sprejetjem sklepa glede odkupa ali odstopa.
(3) Ob odkupu vpleteni družbenik od družbe prejme poplačilo v višini nominalne vrednosti njegovega DELEŽA. V primerih, zajetih z drugim a) in b) odstavkom, morebitni pridobitelj ne postane družbenik, ampak prejme poplačilo v višini nominalne vrednosti DELEŽA.
(4) Namesto odkupa DELEŽA lahko svet s kvalificirano večino sklene, da se DELEŽ odstopi
a) enemu ali več preostalih družbenikov, ki so pripravljeni pridobiti takšen delež poleg svojega lastnega DELEŽA, ali
b) novemu družbeniku v pomenu drugega odstavka 23. člena, ob upoštevanju poplačila enakega zneska, kakor je predviden v tretjem odstavku zgoraj. To je mogoče tudi v obliki, da se del DELEŽA odkupi in drugi del odstopi. Poplačilo poravnajo družbeniki, ki jim je odstopljen DELEŽ ali njegovi deli.
(5) Veljavnost odkupa ali odstopa ni odvisna od plačila zneska za poplačilo.
(6) Vsaka odločitev o odkupu ali odstopu DELEŽA ali njegovega dela postane dokončna z vpisom sklepa sveta in izvršni direktorji jo razglasijo.

SKLEPNA LISTINA
KONFERENCE POOBLAŠČENCEV ZA USTANOVITEV CENTRA ZA RAZISKAVE Z ANTIPROTONI IN IONI V EVROPI
(1) Po razgovorih glede možnih prihodnjih usmeritev zmogljivosti Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung GmbH (GSI) je GSI leta 2000 začel pripravljati zasnovo centra za mednarodne raziskave z antiprotoni in ioni na lokaciji GSI v Darmstadtu.
Na podlagi idejnega projekta, ki vsebuje številne znanstvene in tehnične prispevke s celega sveta, je zasnovo centra leta 2002 ovrednotil in potrdil nemški znanstveni svet (Wissenschaftsrat).
Po sklepu Vlade Zvezne republike Nemčije iz leta 2003 o ustanovitvi predlaganega centra sta bila pripravljena načrt fazne izgradnje in znanstveni program.
Oblikovan je bil mednarodni usmerjevalni odbor. Ustanovitvena seja mednarodnega usmerjevalnega odbora FAIR je bila 2. februarja 2004.
Za spremljanje priprave znanstvenih in raziskovalnih programov, tehničnega načrta, gradbenih načrtov ter razvojne in raziskovalne dejavnosti je bila ustanovljena delovna skupina za znanstvene in tehnične zadeve (STI-FAIR). Dodatna delovna skupina za upravne in finančne zadeve (AFI-FAIR) je bila ustanovljena za vzpostavitev pravne, finančne in upravljavska strukture, postopkov in sestavo pravnih dokumentov.
S podpisom pisem o nameri je leta 2004 veliko število ustanov iz različnih držav izrazilo interes za sodelovanje ali prispevek za prihodnji center FAIR.
Do konca februarja 2007 so vlade Avstrije, Kitajske, Finske, Francije, Nemčije, Grčije, Indije, Italije, Poljske, Romunije, Rusije, Španije, Švedske in Združenega kraljestva Velika Britanija in Severna Irska podpisale memorandum o soglasju, da bi zagotovile podlago za mednarodno sodelovanje med pripravljalno fazo centra FAIR.
7. novembra 2007 so predstavniki desetih od štirinajstih pogodbenic memoranduma o soglasju podpisali sporočilo o uradni ustanovitvi centra za raziskave z antiprotoni in ioni v Evropi (FAIR), s katerim so skupaj oznanili začetek uresničevanja projekta FAIR.
(2) Na povabilo Vlade Zvezne republike Nemčije se je na gradu Biebrich v Wiesbadnu 4. oktobra 2010 sestala konferenca pooblaščencev za ustanovitev centra za raziskave z antiprotoni in ioni v Evropi.
(3) Vlade naslednjih držav so zastopali delegati: Republika Avstrija, Ljudska republika Kitajska, Republika Finska, Francoska republika, Zvezna republika Nemčija, Helenska republika, Republika Indija, Italijanska republika, Republika Poljska, Romunija, Ruska federacija, Slovaška republika, Republika Slovenija, Kraljevina Španija, Kraljevina Švedska in Združeno kraljestvo Velika Britanija in Severna Irska.
(4) Pooblaščenci so predsedniku(ci) konference predali svoja polna pooblastila, ki jih je preučil(a) in ugotovil(a), da so pooblastila v pravilni in ustrezni obliki.
(5) Konferenca se je seznanila z besedilom konvencije, vključno z njeno prilogo in štirimi priloženimi tehničnimi dokumenti:
Priloga:              Akt o ustanovitvi »Centra za raziskave
                      z antiprotoni in ioni v Evropi

                      in preglednica s predvidenim letnim
                      gibanjem izdatkov za gradnjo in
                      delovanje,
Tehnični dokument 3:  karta lokacije, kjer bo zgrajen center
                      FAIR,
Tehnični dokument 4:  postopek prevzema stvarnih vložkov in s
                      tem povezan način vrednotenja.
(6) Po priporočilu mednarodnega usmerjevalnega odbora FAIR je konferenca sprejela besedilo Konvencije o izgradnji in delovanju Centra za raziskave z antiprotoni in ioni v Evropi, vključno z njeno prilogo, ki je sestavni del konvencije.
(7) Konferenca se je strinjala, da se konvencija do začetka njene veljavnosti uporablja začasno, če je začasna uporaba v skladu z notranjo zakonodajo pogodbenic, in v ta namen sprejela sklep št. 1, ki je priložen tej sklepni listini.
(8) Konferenca se je strinjala, da bo z zavezo prispevati za gradbene stroške centra FAIR najmanj 11,87 milijona evrov (ob upoštevanju cen iz januarja leta 2005) v denarju in/ali s stvarnim vložkom, pogodbenica upravičena do imenovanja ustreznega telesa kot družbenika Centra za raziskave z antiprotoni in ioni v Evropi GmbH. Konferenca se je tudi strinjala, da se lahko za ta najmanjši prispevek zaveže več pogodbenic skupaj. V tem primeru morajo ustrezna telesa, ki jih imenujejo te pogodbenice, oblikovati konzorcij, ki bo deloval kot njihov družbenik v Centru za raziskave z antiprotoni in ioni v Evropi GmbH. V ta namen je konferenca sprejela sklep št. 2, ki je priložen tej sklepni listini.

SKLEP ŠT. 2
KONFERENCE POOBLAŠČENCEV ZA USTANOVITEV CENTRA ZA RAZISKAVE Z ANTIPROTONI IN IONI V EVROPI
Zaveza za najmanjši prispevek za gradbene stroške, s katerimi so pogodbenice upravičene, da imenujejo ustrezno telo kot družbenika v Centru za raziskave z antiprotoni in ioni v Evropi GmbH
KONFERENCA
SE STRINJA, da bo z zavezo prispevati za gradbene stroške centra FAIR najmanj 11,87 milijona evrov (ob upoštevanju cen iz januarja leta 2005) v denarju in/ali s stvarnimi vložki pogodbenica upravičena do imenovanja ustreznega telesa kot družbenika Centra za raziskave z antiprotoni in ioni v Evropi GmbH. Za ta najmanjši prispevek se lahko zaveže več pogodbenic skupaj. V tem primeru morajo ustrezna telesa, ki jih imenujejo te pogodbenice, oblikovati konzorcij, ki bo deloval kot njihov družbenik v Centru za raziskave z antiprotoni in ioni v Evropi GmbH,
UGOTAVLJA, da 11,87 milijona evrov ustreza 1% predhodno predvidenih gradbenih stroškov centra FAIR, kakor je opisan v sklopu A tehničnega dokumenta 1, ki je priložen k tej konvenciji.
IZJAVA VLADE FRANCOSKE REPUBLIKE V ZVEZI Z ZAČASNO UPORABO IN NJENIMI FINANČNIMI OBVEZNOSTMI
KONFERENCA
SE JE SEZNANILA z deklaracijo Vlade Francoske republike, ki se glasi:
v skladu s sklepom št. 1, priloženem k sklepni listini, v katerem se pogodbenice strinjajo, da se konvencija začasno uporablja dozačetka njene veljavnosti, če je začasna uporaba v skladu z notranjo zakonodajo pogodbenic, Francija izjavlja, da konvencije ne more začasno uporabljati od dneva podpisa. 53. člen Ustave Francoske republike določa, da mednarodne pogodbe in sporazume pred začetkom njihove veljavnosti odobri parlament kadar imajo ti finančne posledice za finance države kakor v tem primeru.
V zvezi s postopkom, opisanim v šestem odstavku 6. člena konvencije, Francija izjavlja, da francoski delež v letnih operativnih stroških centra FAIR ne bo presegel 2%.
IZJAVA VLADE REPUBLIKE POLJSKE V ZVEZI Z NJENIMI FINANČNIMI OBVEZNOSTMI
KONFERENCA
SE JE SEZNANILA z izjavo Vlade Republike Poljske, ki se glasi:
Republika Poljska bo sodelovala pri izgradnji Centra za raziskave z antiprotoni in ioni v Evropi (FAIR) z zneskom v višini 23,74 milijona evrov (v cenah iz leta 2005). To zajema stvarne vložke in vložke v denarju. Prednost pri zagotavljanju sredstev imajo stvarni vložki, denarni vložek pa ne sme preseči 11,87 milijona evrov (v cenah iz leta 2005).
IZJAVA VLADE REPUBLIKE SLOVENIJE V ZVEZI Z ZAČASNO UPORABO KONVENCIJE
KONFERENCA
SE JE SEZNANILA z izjavo Vlade Republike Slovenije, ki se glasi:
v zvezi s sklepom št. 1, priloženim k sklepni listini, v kateri je predvideno, da pogodbenice konvencijo lahko začasno uporabljajo, dokler v posameznih državah pogodbenicah niso dokončani ustrezni ustavni postopki za začetek veljavnosti konvencije, Slovenija izjavlja, da konvencije od dneva podpisa ne more začasno uporabljati.
Slovenski zakon o zunanjih zadevah v 72. členu omogoča začasno uporabo mednarodne pogodbe pred njenim začetkom veljavnosti samo v primerih, ko je za njeno ratifikacijo pristojna Vlada Republike Slovenije, kar pa ne velja za to konvencijo, saj je njena ratifikacija v pristojnosti Državnega zbora Republike Slovenije.
IZJAVA VLADE KRALJEVINE ŠPANIJE
V ZVEZI Z NJENIMI FINANČNIMI OBVEZNOSTMI
KONFERENCA
SE JE SEZNANILA z izjavo Vlade Kraljevine Španije, ki se glasi:
Španija je pripravljena prispevati kot sodelujoča država k vzpostavitvi in delovanju Centra za raziskave z antiprotoni in ioni v Evropi (FAIR). Ne glede na to so obveznosti Španije ob podpisu konvencije naslednje:
1. Španija bo pregledala svoje sodelovanje v operativni fazi dve leti po njenem začetku in lahko odstopi brez pogodbene kazni, če to stori z enoletnim odpovednim rokom.
2. Če je ocena pregleda pozitivna, lahko Španija podaljša sodelovanje za nadaljnje triletno obdobje ob upoštevanju ustreznega cikla pregleda in lahko še naprej sodeluje v celotnem obdobju trajanja projekta.
3. Če se Španija po prvem pregledu odloči za nadaljevanje projekta, prevzame polno odgovornost za razgradnjo po konvenciji. Če se Španija na podlagi prvega pregleda odloči za odstop od sodelovanja, krije le petdeset odstotkov svoje obveznosti za razgradnjo centra po konvenciji.
IZJAVA VLADE KRALJEVINE ŠVEDSKE V ZVEZI Z NJENIMI FINANČNIMI OBVEZNOSTMI IN ZAUPNOSTJO
KONFERENCA
SE JE SEZNANILA z izjavo Vlade Kraljevine Švedske, ki se glasi:
Švedska je pripravljena prispevati kot sodelujoča država k vzpostavitvi in delovanju Centra za raziskave z antiprotoni in ioni v Evropi (FAIR). Vendar:
1. švedski organ, ki bo deloval kot švedski družbenik v družbi FAIR in bo za gradbene stroške prispeval znesek v višini 10 milijonov evrov (v cenah iz leta 2005), bo imenovala Vlada Kraljevine Švedske po odobritvi v parlamentu;
2. podlaga za sodelovanje Švedske pri izgradnji centra FAIR je njeno najmanj triletno sodelovanje v operativni fazi centra FAIR, vendar pa bo Švedska po prvih dveh letih ponovno preučila svoje nadaljnje sodelovanje v operativni fazi in imela možnost brez pogodbene kazni odstopiti z enoletnim odpovednim rokom, če bi po opravljenem pregledu to želela;
3. po uspešnem pregledu lahko Švedska ponudi podaljšanje svojega sodelovanja za nadaljnje triletno (ali petletno) obdobje ob upoštevanju ustreznega cikla pregleda in lahko še naprej sodeluje v celotnem obdobju trajanja projekta;
4. če bo po prvem pregledu Švedske priporočeno njeno nadaljnje sodelovanje v projektu, bo Švedska v celoti sprejela svojo obveznost za razgradnjo centra po konvenciji.
Če se po prvem pregledu Švedska odloči za odstop od sodelovanja, bo sprejela odgovornost za petdeset odstotkov svojega deleža pri stroških razgradnje po konvenciji;
5. da bi zadostili zahtevam pravila v švedski ustavi glede načela javnega dostopa do dokumentov je treba 19. člen v aktu o ustanovitvi (priloga h konvenciji) o zaupnosti, razlagati tako:
Švedski organ, ki bo deloval kot švedski družbenik v družbi FAIR (FAIR GmbH, s sedežem v Nemčiji), se vedno posvetuje z družbenikom, ki je poslal zaupne podatke, kakor so opredeljeni v 19. členu akta o ustanovitvi, preden sprejme kakršno koli odločitev, s katero dovoljuje tretjim osebam dostop do teh podatkov. Švedska se zaveda, da če po takšnem obveznem posvetovanju družbenik izjavi, da ne soglaša z razkritjem podatkov, in bi jih švedski organ kljub temu razkril, bi ravnanje Švedske skalilo odnose med Švedsko in pogodbenicami te konvencije.
V tem okviru se Švedska sklicuje na švedski zakon o javnem dostopu do informacij in tajnosti iz leta 2009, še posebej prvi odstavek prvega oddelka 15. poglavja, ki se glasi: »Tajnost velja za vsak podatek, ki se nanaša na odnose Švedske z drugo državo, ali vsak podatek, ki se kako drugače nanaša na drugo državo, mednarodno organizacijo, organ, državljana ali pravno osebo v drugi državi ali osebo brez državljanstva, če se lahko domneva, da bi razkritje podatkov lahko skalilo mednarodne odnose Švedske ali kako drugače škodilo državi«.
3. člen
Za izvajanje sporazuma skrbi Ministrstvo za visoko šolstvo, znanost in tehnologijo.
4. člen
Republika Slovenija v skladu z drugim odstavkom 1. člena Konvencije o izgradnji in delovanju Centra za raziskave z antiprotoni in ioni v Evropi (FAIR) kot družbenika, ki deluje v njenem imenu, določa Ministrstvo za visoko šolstvo, znanost in tehnologijo.
5. člen
Ta zakon začne veljati naslednji dan po objavi v Uradnem listu Republike Slovenije – Mednarodne pogodbe.
