NATO Codification Committee convenes at NSPA

16 March 2015


NSPA welcomed 59 representatives from 36 nations in Capellen last week as part of the NATO Allied Committee (AC/135 -Codification).

This group forms AC/135 Panel A and is comprised of representatives responsible for general and technical matters related to the NATO Codification System (NCS). The group also included non-NATO nation representatives from as far away as Singapore and South Africa. 

Among the issues discussed were:

  • the transition of NCS data to an Extensible Mark-up Language platform,
  • improvements to the NATO Master Catalogue of Reference for Logistics,
  • data quality projects, and
  • enhancements to the NATO Codification System standard training curriculum. 

Opening remarks were made by Dr. Bülent Tüdes, General and Cooperative Services Programme and information about various Programme activities at NSPA was made available to all attendees.

AC/135 is the largest NATO Allied Committee with 28 NATO and 34 non-NATO nations currently affiliated with it.
