The European Union and NATO have just put in place the "EU/NATO Security Agreement" which is considered a prerequisite for the EU's military arm ("second pillar") to have access to NATO "assets". It designates the NATO Office of Security (NOS), the EU Council General Secretariat Security Office (GSC Security Office, the "Central Registry" for NATO classified information provided to the EU) and the European Commission Security Office.
