The European Union will supply a number of diagnostics for ITER. Significant progress has been made on the design and integration of these diagnostics. Specific topics, in common for several of the diagnostics, discussed are port-plug integration, simplification of labyrinths against neutron streaming, and design measures to protect and to be able to replace sensitive optical components. Performance analysis to predict the likely capability of the diagnostics to meet the ITER measurement requirements will be an important aspect of the design process. The interpretation of the measurement requirements, specifically of spatial resolution in the case of indirect measurements, is discussed on the basis of two examples, and methods of performance analysis are compared.
