The contractor will assist the chair of this group in the preparation of the group's meetings. The contractor acts as its technical secretariat. The tasks of the administrative secretariat (logistical support) are part of another contract.

The contractor will also give technical


to the working groups created under ADCO and organise other cooperative actions between the EU country authorities

. The joint market surveillance programme is one of these.
