Chapter 6: Logistic Support for Partnership for Peace (PfP)

Ongoing Specific Consumer Logistic Activities

606. NATO Logistics Course for Partners (NLCP). The NLCP are held in parallel with the NATO Logistics Course (NLC).

607. Other Courses. Courses are offered by NATO and by Partner nations in the disciplines of NATO logistics, UN and NATO Peacekeeping, Civil/Military Cooperation (CIMIC), and Civil Emergency Planning (CEP). Course content and frequency are tailored to demand, and written back-up material in languages other than English is being made available.

608. Exercise Cooperative Support (COSUP). This multi-national maritime exercise organized by SACLANT is held annually and is designed to introduce Partner nations to the Alliance's concept for the logistic support of multinational maritime operations.

609. NATO Maintenance Supply Agency (NAMSA) Technical Support to PfP Countries. The Council has approved a NATO Maintenance and Supply Organization (NAMSO) Board of Directors request that NAMSA be authorized, on a reimbursable basis, to render technical assistance to PfP countries. Initially, this assistance will be generally consultative in nature, but in the longer term will involve actual logistics management and operations.

610. National Bilateral Logistic Activities with Partnership Nations. There are extensive bilateral logistic contacts between individual NATO and Partnership nations. A Report on Bilateral Logistics Activities, based on contributions from the nations, MNCs and NAMSA, is compiled by the SNLC Secretariat as part of an annual SNLC Report on PfP Implementation.
