(1)  Germany: VS = Verschlusssache.

(2)  France: the classification “Très secret défense”, which covers governmental priority issues, may be changed only with the Prime Minister's authorisation.

(3)  France does not use the classification category “DIFFUSION RESTREINTE” in its national system. France handles and protects documents bearing the marking “RESTREINT UE” according to its national laws and regulations in force, which are not less stringent than the provisions of the Council's security regulations.
