Who decides if an Action is urgent?

  • Actions responding to Primary Emergency Decisions and to Emergency Decisions are always urgent and can never be extended.
  • For Actions under HIPs, the partner can choose to submit the simplified SF signalling that it intends to have an urgent action. However, it is for ECHO to agree on the qualification of “Urgent Action”. In such a case, a specific provision must be included in article 6.3 of the SGA.
