  • Provide opportunities to harmonize procedures and processes amongst participating Member States in all aspects related to sharing of spare parts;.

Detailed description of the project 

The objective of the Sharing of Spare Parts Project is to establish a multinational framework with agreed principles and procedures for the request and provision of Mutual Logistic Support (MLS) in peacetime and during the execution of operations between all services of the Armed Forces of the contributing Member States. The MLS focuses both on an unforeseen and temporary lack of common supplies as well as on service support for standard or specific equipment. The initiative will facilitate mutual assistance in terms of spare parts whenever two or more National contingents deployed in an operational or training environment operate the same land, naval, or air platform or utilise any kind of telecommunication, logistical, medical equipment.
