privileges pertaining to Country X's Liaison Officer.

   a. A primary and alternate Contact Officer will be appointed to work directly with Country
   X's Liaison Officer on a regular basis. A U.S. Host activity action officer will be assigned as
   the Primary Contact Officer and the Deputy Chief of Staff will be appointed as the Alternate
   Contact Officer. Both of these individuals will be thoroughly familiar with the information
   contained herein, DoD Directives 5230.11 and 5230.20, and other pertinent documents.

   b. Country X's Liaison Officer is authorized to coordinate with Country X's Joint Planning
   Staffs on matters of mutual interest to the U.S. Host activity with the approval of the contact
   officer. Such authorization, however, is not to be used as a method of providing military or
   classified information to Country X's Joint Planning Staffs.

   c. Country X's Liaison Officer may have access to classified information during normal duty
   hours when access is necessary in the performance of duties if the information has been
   properly authorized for disclosure. See paragraphs 2, 3, 4, and 5 above.




                                                                                             June 2009
International Programs Security Handbook                                                     I-4

   d. During duty hours, Country X's Liaison Officer shall wear the uniform prescribed by the
   uniform regulations of his parent service. The order of dress for any occasion shall be that
   which most nearly conforms to the order of dress of the U.S. Host activity. The customs of
   the U.S. Host activity shall be observed with respect to the wearing of civilian clothes.

   e. Country X's Liaison Officer will wear, in clear view, a U.S. Host activity security badge
   that identifies the officer as a foreign liaison officer. Request for issuance of the security
   badge must be in writing, per guidance contained in DoD Directive 5230.20. The U.S. Host
   activity security badge for liaison officers is purple in color, has the Country X flag and the
   U.S. Host activity logo at the top, Country X's Liaison Officer's photo in the center, and the
   words "Country X's Liaison Officer" at the bottom of the badge.

   f. When required, Country X's Liaison Officer may have access to a STU-III terminal which
   is under direct and continuous U.S. control during access. Country X's Liaison Officer may
   be permitted access to the area where the terminal is installed, or may be permitted to use the
   terminal. Although Country X's Liaison Officer may place nonsecure calls (the CIK must be
   removed and protected), U.S. personnel must place and supervise all calls when Country X's
   Liaison Officer needs to use the terminal's secure mode. Such use must be required in support
   of U.S. operations. The U.S. person must first identify Country X's Liaison Officer to the
   distant end, indicating his/her clearance if a clearance is known and required for the call.

   g. Country X's Liaison Officer will not:

      (1) Have personal custody of classified or controlled unclassified information.

      (2) Have access to "RED" telephones.

      (3) Have unsupervised access to libraries or document catalogues unless the information
      therein is releasable to the public. Information required from these sources in order for
      Country X's Liaison Officer to perform his duties will be obtained through the Contact
      Officer or his alternate.

      (4) Be given security responsibilities (e.g., escort responsibility, document custodian or
      courier, security checks, arrange for visits by foreign nationals, etc.).

      (5) Have uncontrolled access to any security containers. A container may be designated
      solely for his use, but the U.S. Host activity Security Officer will retain a copy of the
      combination and have the right of inspections and inventories.

      (6) Have access to information described in paragraph 6 above.

      (7) Be allowed to pick up distribution.

      (8) Act as a courier for classified information to be released to his or her government,
      unless specifically designated in writing as a courier by his or her Embassy, and possesses
      courier orders issued by that Embassy.


                                                                                             June 2009
