The extensive EU research and development, on international thermonuclear experimental reactor (ITER) high heat flux (HHF) components aims at the demonstration of prototypes for the divertor and baffle with challenging operating requirements. The recent progress of this development is summarized in the paper, particularly concerning the manufacture and testing of mock-ups and prototypes. The available results demonstrate the feasibility of robust solutions with carbon and tungsten armour.
