The agreement provides for: - A link between demand for services and applications using space systems in support of the Community policies. - A common basis for appropriate operational arrangements. - The objectives of the agreement include securing Europe's independence access to space and ensuring that the European Space Policy takes into particular account the policies pursued by the Community.
