Accession partnership

European Commission - Enlargement - Accession partnership

Accession partnerships define the framework of the accession process. They set out:

  • key priority areas in which candidate countries need to make progress, i.e. priorities identified in the European Commission’s opinion on applications for European Union membership*;
  • pre-accession assistance.

Each candidate country draws up a national programme for the adoption of the acquis* (NPAA), which sets out a timetable for putting the partnership into effect. Each candidate country also draws up an action plan for strengthening its administrative and judicial capacities.
