Becoming a partner

© European Union/ECHO

To become a humanitarian partner of the European Commission, organisations must apply for a Framework Partnership Agreement (FPA).

FPAs may be concluded between the Commission and the organisations either under the Humanitarian Aid Regulation (HAR) or under the Emergency Support Regulation (ESR).

In both cases, partners are selected based on specific criteria and legal and financial requirements, as well as quality standards. This helps ensure that partnerships are of value to both the European Commission and the applying organisation.

For technical instructions on how to become a European Commission humanitarian partner, please visit the ECHO Partners website.
