NATO Industrial Advisory Group (NIAG)

The NIAG, formed in 1968, is a high-level consultative and advisory group of senior industrialists of NATO member countries acting under the Conference of National Armaments Directors (CNAD), the principal forum in NATO for Armaments Cooperation.


  •  A forum of free exchange of views on industrial, technical, and economic management of research, development and production of armaments equipment within the Alliance.
  •  Industry’s advice to the CNAD on fostering government-to-industry and industry-to-industry armaments cooperation.
  •  Optional use of NIAG resources to assist CNAD armaments groups in exploring opportunities for international collaboration, and ways to satisfy NATO military requirements.
