The Ghana-EU joint committee that oversees the implementation of the agreement is called the Joint Monitoring Review Mechanism (JMRM). The JMRM is provided for under Article 19 of the VPA agreement. The frequency of meetings is set for at least once a year. Since the signing of the agreement in November 2009, the JMRM has had eight meetings. The mechanism also conducts technical sessions when required. At the end of each sesson of the JMRM, an Aide Memoires is issued.
