The Client declares that all authorized personnel will comply with the entrance protocol at Nikhef.
  2. A list of authorized personnel has to be provided to Nikhef by the Client at the start of the housing contract and/or upon Nikhef’s request. The Client is responsible for the list and notifies Nikhef in writing of any change in the list of authorized personnel as soon as possible.
