International cooperation and assistance

Bilateral agreements providing for mutual assistance in the event of a catastrophe or serious accident exist between the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and the three neighbouring countries.

Thanks to the European Union mechanism which aims to promote enhanced cooperation for emergency intervention in the area of civil protection, Luxembourg may, if necessary, request international assistance, either directly from other Member States or via the Emergency Response Coordination Centre (ERCC).

In addition, Luxembourg may also request additional aid via NATO's Euro Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Centre through the intermediary of the High Commission for National Protection.
