The ITER Magnet system [1] consists of four main coils sub-systems: 18 Toroidal Field Coils (TF-coil), a Central Solenoid (CS), 6 Poloidal Field Coils (PF-coil) and 18 Correction Coils (EFCC). The main contract of the EFCCs supply is awarded to the Institute of Plasma Physics Chinese Academy of Sciences (ASIPP) by the Chinese Domestic Agency (CNDA). According to the pre-qualification program, ASIPP is implementing the procurement phase to qualify and validate key technologies and manufacturing methods. The Correction coils qualification activities are conducted within the framework of the procurement arrangement set up between the ITER Organization and CNDA. The paper describes the CC development including first results of the coils winding qualification trials and, qualification of a S-Glass fiber-polyimide based insulation system The CC casing assembly process and the first results of the welding trials are reported. The weld qualification, according to ASTM for 316LN austenitic steel is reported in terms of fracture toughness, fatigue crack growth, and tensile property at 4 K. The Vacuum Pressure Impregnation of CC short mock-up, with low viscosity bisphenol-F (DGEBF) epoxy resin, aims to optimization of the curing and insulation mechanical properties.
