International relations

Cooperation between the European Court of Audit and the national audit bodies is required under article 248, 3. of the E.C.-Treaty.

These various bodies keep regular contacts about the audit of Community expenditures.

The liaison officers of the audit bodies of the Member states regularly meet with the heads of the European Court of Auditors in Luxembourg. Moreover, upon the proposal of the European Court of Auditors, the Contact Committee of the presidents of the national audit institutions meet each year to exchange their experiences about auditing.

The Belgian Court of Audit also takes part in congresses organised by INTOSAI (International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions) and, since 1990, by EUROSAI (European Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions).
