Forces Armées

Au sein de l'OTAN, des "STANAG" en rapport avec la gestion et la sécurité des stocks d'armement existent. En temps qu'Allié, la Belgique respecte ces accords qui ont été traduits dans des directives nationales de sécurité. D'autre part, celles-ci sont élaborées en conformité avec les règles émises par le législateur. Ces directives sont régulièrement réévaluées sur base des pratiques recommandées au niveau international. La Belgique appuie les efforts menés dans ces domaines au profit d'Etats tiers par les Organismes régionaux auxquels elle participe (UE, OTAN, OSCE,…)

Armed Forces

In NATO, 'STANAGs' [Standardization Agreements] apply to the management and safeguarding of arms stockpiles. As an Ally, Belgium respects these agreements, which have been translated into national security directives. Moreover, these have been elaborated in conformity with the rules issued by the legislature. These directives are regularly re-evaluated according the practice recommended at the international level. Belgium supports the efforts in this area of regional organizations to which it is a member for the benefit of third party states (EU, NATO, OSCE,…).
