The Combat Readiness Evaluation (CREVAL) program is a generic program where the same areas and evaluation methodology are used for all types of NATO Land Forces. The aims of the CREVAL program is first to evaluate and verify the Combat Readiness of Land Forces declared to NATO. The second is to provide the commander of each unit with recommendations comments and feedback to improve that respective force. The goal is for each unit evaluated in 2015 to be ready at any time to provide the Alliance with an optimum command system successfully capable of conducting present and future NATO operations.
