VPA annex on the joint implementation committee
Under a Voluntary Partnership Agreement (VPA), the EU and partner country create a joint implementation committee once both parties have ratified a VPA. An annex on the joint implementation committee describes the structure and functions of the committee.
In some instances, parties to a VPA have recognised that the formalities of ratification take time and have established an interim mechanism for monitoring and coordination in advance of setting up a joint implementation committee.
In VPAs that do not include an annex on a joint implementation committee, information regarding the committee is in the main text.
