We continue to monitor the progress of the European Air Transport Fleet Programme and keep our current position of non-membership under review.

We support the work undertaken through the Counter-Improvised Explosive Devices (C-IED) Theatre Exploitation Laboratory Technical Arrangement, including through sharing information on the UK's established C-IED capability, but we do not intend to join the programme.
