  SPIRAL1 Upgrade hardware is now almost completed. The FEBIAD 1+ source has been tested for the production of new radioactive isotopes, PHOENIX Charge Breeder (CB) is in place reproducing nearly the charge breeding efficiencies measured at LPSC lab and the infrastructure is operational to welcome such new multifaceted devices. The commissioning phase started in the second semester of 2017. It has consisted of a stepwise process to test the upgrade of the SPIRAL1 facility from simple validation (operation of CB as a stand-alone source) up to the production of the first 1+/n+ Radioactive Ion Beam (RIB) with the 37K9+. This contribution will summarize the different steps completed successfully and especially the measurements done to validate each of the commissioning stages. These include e.g. ionization efficiencies for CB; beam line optics for 1+/n+ and charge breeding efficiencies. The remaining effort required to ensure the reliability of the complete system for routine RIB operation is also presented. A section will be dedicated to a new feature of SPIRAL1 facility: combination of CB and CIME leads to deliver stable beams with energies never done until now.
