A general approach to derivation of formally exact closed time-local or time-nonlocal evolution equations for non-equilibrium multi-time correlations functions made of observables of an open quantum system interacting simultaneously with external time-dependent classical fields and dissipative environment is discussed. The approach allows for the subsequent treatment of these equations within a perturbative scheme assuming that the system-environment interaction is weak.
