The interaction region is an important and challenging part of the design of any accelerator. An important aspect of this design is the compensation of the errors in the interaction region, necessary not only to control de orbit deviation but also to ensure the long term stability of the beam. Several errors are expected to be found in the lattice; this study contemplates only errors in the interaction region, particularly alignment and field errors in the quadrupoles of the inner triplet and the separation/recombination dipoles. In order to correct the effects of these errors a correction scheme is used based on a series of correctors arranged along the interaction region and a series of BPMs to monitor the orbit. After the correction procedure we are able to estimate the tolerance on misalignment and field errors in order to provide a good correction measured in terms of deviation of the orbit, strength of the correctors and effects on long term stability via the dynamic aperture.
