Every SHAPE sponsor MUST out-process to ensure their files are completed and closed. This is a very important and delicate process which can cause a lot of problems if not done correctly.
To out process, you must complete following:
A) Be sure you have all of the correct information before starting.
You can contact your NMR or support unit, read this webpage before or visiting the Registration Section ( building 210- room 109 open from Monday until Thursday 0845-1300 1400-1700 on Friday 0845-1300)
B) Start preparing at least ten working days prior to departure to inform yourself and begin to out process at least seven days before leaving. This is necessary because if there are any problems you have the time to fix them
C) Download the SHAPE form 52, which is the official out processing document, and complete the top section with your personal details.
Start your tour of all required services, beginning with your own agency, mentioned on the form.
The person responsible for each service will verify if you have turned in all received items or paid all bills.
D) Be sure that you have all required documents before you start your tour and do not forget them
( SHAPE ID, P-ID or Belgian ID, ration cards, security badges, vehicle plates, proofs of payments …)

SECTION IV –Clearance by NMRs or national organisations and SHAPE HRM for civilians
IT’S THE REPONSABILITY OF THE NATIONAL ORGANISATIONS OR SHAPE HRM THAT THEIR PEOPLE HAVE FULLFILLED ALL THEIR OBLIGATIONS.
Last step in the out processing is to bring the SF 52 together with all the ID-cards and ration cards from the sponsor and his dependants to the FSCEP RGN to make the final international clearance.
Any lost or stolen cards must be justified by a declaration done by the Federal Police (stolen), building 247 or a SF-16 done by the FSCEP RGN (lost).
During this last step you must sign the SF 52 which count as a declaration that you fulfilled all your obligations and that if something pups up after your departure you will stay full responsible.
At last the clerks of FSCEP-RGN will give the final clearance, stamp and sign the SF 52 and provide you a copy.
Now you are definitively out-processed.
