The Department ensures that any UK contribution to allies' operations is consistent with British values and British and international law. Legal advice is sought throughout the authorisation process, and policies such as the Overseas Security and Justice Assistance policy and the Cabinet Office Consolidated Guidance policy are also applied where relevant.
