This chapter addresses some of the various types of ‘separate’, or supplemental, arrangements that have been developed under the NATO SOFA. Since 1951, it has become practice among NATO Member States and its new partners to provide for any modifications and supplements of the conditions laid down in the NATO SOFA by legally binding agreements concluded by or on behalf of the participating States rather than by informal instruments. The chapter provides some examples of each and what they are designed to accomplish. In some instances the language which has been used in such agreements are also provided. For the most part, examples are drawn from agreements to which the US is a party, either under the NATO SOFA, other stand-alone status-of-forces agreements (SOFAs), or agreements based on other authority that can be used to implement or supplement the SOFA.
