Following a decision of the North Atlantic Council (NAC), the Centre  has earned status as the 21st NATO`s Centre of Excellence and has been activated since March 31, 2015 as a NATO Military Body with a granted international status under the Paris Protocols.

In present strategic environment, the Centre takes on the important task to build capacity of NATO capabilities in crisis management and disaster response. As part of NATO Smart Defence initiative, it will contribute to enhance the interoperability through research, analyzes, lessons learned, and, sharing of information in the aspects of crisis management and disaster response. The Centre has continuously developed and, in some cases expanded the expertise in order to meet the needs of NATO capabilities in the field of crisis management and disaster response. The CMDR COE has provided robust training and has been a home for many workshops, experiments and seminars.Since its accreditation, Crisis Management and Disaster Response Centre Excellence (CMDR COE) has developed four NATO Selected courses annually.
