The attached proposal constitutes the legal instrument for the signing of a Protocol to the Cooperation Agreement on a Civil Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) between the European Community and its Member States and Ukraine to take account of the accession of Republic of Bulgaria, the Republic of Croatia and Romania to the European Union.

In accordance with the Acts of Accession of the Republic of Bulgaria, Romania and the Republic of Croatia, the three Member States shall accede to the international agreements signed or concluded by the European Union and its Member States by means of a protocol to those agreements.

The Council authorised the Commission on 23 October 2006 and on 14 September 2012 to open negotiations with the third countries concerned on the relevant protocols for the accession of the Republic of Bulgaria, Romania and the Republic of Croatia respectively.

The Cooperation Agreement on a Civil Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) between the the European Community and its Member States and Ukraine was signed on 1 December 2005 and entered into force on 1 December 2013 (“ the Agreement”).

The negotiations with Ukraine were successfully concluded by exchange of notes verbales.

The Commission considers the outcome of the negotiations satisfactory and proposes to the Council to sign, on behalf of the European Union and its Member States, the Protocol. Following its signature the Protocol should be concluded by the Council on behalf of the European Union and its Member States.
