NATO - AAP-47
ALLIED JOINT DOCTRINE DEVELOPMENT
|Publication Date:||19 February 2019|
AAP-47 describes how NATO develops operational-level Allied joint doctrine covered in AJPs. The Allied joint doctrine development process outlined in this AAP describes the roles and responsibilities, and provides detailed guidance for developing, staffing, maintaining, revising and cancelling AJPs. Allied doctrine not covered in AJPs (level-3 doctrine) is not strictly within the remit of this publication, but custodians can use this publication as guidance. Chapter 1, Section 5 does, however, offer some guidance to give coherence among Allied publications.
This publication provides guidance to those involved in developing AJPs. All AJPs must be developed in accordance with the procedures outlined in this publication. If this is not the case then the new AJP concerned will not enter ratification.
