IMPORTANT:
– Incomplete documents or documents submitted after the deadline will not be accepted.
– Users who have not completed radiation worker registration are not permitted to carry out experiments at SPring-8.
– The links to List of Carry-In Items (Form 8) and List of Samples, Reagents, etc. (Form 9) are not displayed until after Application Form for SPring-8 Facilities (Form 10) has been submitted. In case of any change in the online forms after submission, please notify the Users Office via e-mail.
