The Council decided, on Monday 15 September 2008, to establish an autonomous civilian monitoring mission in Georgia. The mission was deployed on 1 October 2008, in accordance with the arrangements set out in the EU-mediated Six Point Agreement. Since then, the mandate of the mission has been extended every year. On 16 of December 2014 the Council extended EUMM's mandate for two years, until 14 December 2016.
The European Union Monitoring Mission (EUMM) in Georgia is an unarmed and impartial civilian monitoring mission led by the EU under the EU Common security and defence policy (CSDP).
