The agenda of the meeting covered topics such as the agency’s new legal mandate recently adopted by the European Parliament – which will enter into force on 1 July 2016 - and two strategic documents that reflect how this regulation will impact CEPOL’s work: the Single Programming Document and the Change Management Plan.

Furthermore, CEPOL staff presented the agency’s core business, the main achievements in 2015, the implementation of next year’s training activities and the areas where the agency will be focusing in 2016. CEPOL’s cooperation with external partners and other stakeholders was also addressed at the meeting.

The Netherlands took over the Presidency of the European Union on 1 January 2016.
