Check the status of your access documentation

  • You can check whether you are registered on the LNF Database as a BTF group member on the Complete List of people who have access as members of BTF group.
  • Your Group Leader can skip Step 1 for you if in the column Access1 or Access2 you see: Experiments; this means you have access privileges for experimental activities to the LNF grounds until the date written next to it. If not, this should be requested by the Group Leader (Step 1).
  • If you do not appear at all in the Complete List maybe you are registered as a member of a group different from the BTF. Search below on your last name.

    If you do not appear here Step 1. and Step 2. are compulsive.
