In its last meeting on 2-3 December, the scientific committee of the Laboratorio Subterráneo de Canfranc has approved the experiment proposal of TREX-DM. The detector is already built in the Universidad de Zaragoza, and would be practically ready to be moved underground. Shielding, gas system and other ancillary systems must be built. The risk analysis study, installation and commissioning of the experiment is foreseen to happen in the coming months, moving the project to the point of data taking by the end of 2017.
