Whereas, the JET Council has, for that purpose, approved an extension of the Joint Undertaking to 31 December 1996 and the corresponding amendments to the JET Statutes;

Whereas, the 'Swedish Natural Science Research Council` replaces the 'Swedish Energy Research Commission` as the Swedish Member of the Joint Undertaking from 1 July 1987;

Whereas, the 'Kernforschunsanlage Juelich GmbH` changed its name to 'Forschungszentrum Juelich GmbH` on 1 January 1990;

Whereas the 'Comitato nazionale per la ricerca e per lo sviluppo dell'energia nucleare e dell'energie alternative (ENEA)` changed its name to 'Ente per le nuove tecnologie, l'energia e l'ambiente (ENEA)` on 14 September 1991,
