About the Event

Codification touches virtually every area of the supply chain and courses will deal with fundamental issues such as identifying material correctly. Being able to communicate a common language of logistics is really the bedrock of working together either within Armed Forces or in the multinational operations.

The purpose of the National Codification Bureau (NCB) NCB College is to provide a comprehensive education about NATO codification and how it fits into the overall logistics process. It is comprised of two units, the Course for Managers and Directors, and the Course for Codifiers and Logisticians. It also provides an opportunity to visit a Military Warehouse or Depot to fully understand the importance of the NATO Stock Numbers and how it is used throughout the Logistics Lifecycle.


Security

All non-NATO participants are requested to email copies of their passports to the AC/135 Secretariat AC135secretary@nspa.nato.int. Failure to comply will result to non-admittance to NSPA premises. The original passports must be presented at the NSPA gate at the first day of the meeting in order to access NSPA premises.

Location

NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) is a customer-funded agency, operating on a no profit - no loss basis. NSPA brings together in a single organization NATO's logistics and procurement support activities, providing integrated multinational support solutions for its stakeholders. In 2015, the NATO North Atlantic Council (NAC) approved changes to the Charter, marking the expansion of the Agency's capability scope and the inclusion of major, multi-national weapons system acquisition in our broad capability set.

Over the years, the Agency has expanded greatly its capability portfolio, creating competency in 5 main capability areas; Support to Operations and Exercises, Systems Procurement and Life-Cycle Management, Fuel Management, Strategic Transport and Storage, and Logistics Services and Project Management.

Transportation

Public transportation in Luxembourg is free for residents and tourists. This is the case for trains, trams and buses (RGTR, TICE, AVL). In other words, you don't need to buy a ticket anymore. The only exception are tickets and subscriptions for first class, which still have to be paid for. However, every passenger has to present a piece of identity if a conductor demands to see one.

Registrants have to self-arrange their transportation to the NSPA gate, where they will be picked up by NSPA personnel. The most preferred method is a train ride from the Luxembourg city central train station (Gare) to Capellen and then walk a 300 meter distance to the NSPA gate.
