A joint IUPAC/IUPAP Working Party (JWP) has confirmed the discovery of the elements with atomic numbers 114 and 116. In accordance with IUPAC procedures, the discoverers proposed names as follows: flerovium with the symbol Fl for the element with Z = 114 and livermorium with the symbol Lv for the element with Z = 116. The IUPAC Inorganic Chemistry Division recommended these proposals for acceptance, and they were adopted on 23 May 2012 by the IUPAC Bureau as delegated to act by the IUPAC Council meeting on 3–4 August 2011.
