Summary/Abstract: The HNS is both a category of logistic support applicable to Article 5 and Non-Article 5 scenarios type and a choice that must be carefully planned and organized to reduce the dependence of NATO missions on their logistical side. Thus, with the accession of local resources, it is obvious that the elimination of time necessary to bring these resources from other places is achieved, which reduces the time necessary for the deployment of troops participating in military activities in Joint Operation Area (JOA) and gives the fighting actions a much greater flexibility. In NATO doctrine, it is considered that the Host Nation Support plays an essential role in gaining decisive advantages over the opponents’ forces.The main purposes of this paper is to present how Host Nation Support (HNS) concept is understood and implemented by NATO member countries, also when our country can provide this type of logistical support, responsibilities assumed in terms of planning and providing HNS and the HNS management system of Romania.
