The concept of subsidiary protection was defined by the Austrian Presidency in 1998 as protection for persons from third states who do not fall within the scope of the Geneva Convention but who still have need of some other form of international protection. It was distinguished from temporary protection on the basis that it was granted following individual status determination, whereas temporary protection, at least in the EU context, denotes protection granted in a mass influx situation. A summary of EU subsidiary protection practices in February 1999 noted that all Member States had some form of subsidiary protection applied in parallel with Convention protection, but its nature varied considerably.
