The 10th Operational Logistics Support Partnership (OLSP) Committee meeting was held in Capellen in early April.

The meeting was attended by representatives from the 12 current OLSP members and associate states (Austria, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway and United Kingdom) and from two observers nations Bulgaria and USA.

The OLSP functions within the Logistics Operations & Plans Office (LL) and is established under the aegis of the NSPO Charter to be a fully integrated service support provider open to both NATO and Partner Nations. The OLSP concept includes a standing logistics contingency planning capability that assists Nations to best utilise the capabilities, expertise and services provided by NSPA to meet operational and exercise requirements. The OLSP concept is well recognized by the nations, and Bulgaria and USA have expressed intent to apply for membership.
