A Decision formally launching PESCO is expected to be taken in December 2017 with the first capability projects launched in early 2018. The UK did not sign the Joint Notification and will, therefore, remain outside of PESCO. In doing so, the UK will have no decision making rights over its governance or veto over its future strategic direction.
