Security of Supply

Co-operation designed to maintain society’s basic economic functions

Security of supply refers to society’s ability to maintain the basic economic functions required for ensuring people’s livelihood, the overall functioning and safety of society, and the material preconditions for military defence in the event of serious disruptions and emergencies.

Security of supply is based on the inherent structures of the economy

Security of supply is grounded in well-functioning markets and a competitive economy. The markets, however, may not always be sufficient to maintain society’s fundamental economic and other critical functions amid disruptions and emergencies. For this reason, diverse security of supply measures are employed to ensure the continuity of national critical infrastructure and services under all circumstances.
