Administrative history

Between 1949 and 1963, the Standing Group (hereinafter referred to as SG) was made up of the French, British and US representatives, who acted as Chairman on a rotating annual basis. The SG met regularly, once a week. The Chairman was assisted by a Director in the performance of his duties and the effective implementation of day-to-day work. (See SGM-1702-SG, page 6, SG organization).Following a reshuffle which was approved in 1963 and became effective in 1964, all the subordinate groups of the SG were opened up to the other NATO member nations (see MC 2/2-final and MCM-114-63). From that point on, each subordinate group was chaired for 2 or 3 years by one nation (preferably not France, the US or the UK).The SG and all its subordinate groups (including the secretariat) were abolished in July 1966, after France decided to withdraw from the integrated military structure (see MCM-90-66(REV) and GF(66)D-27).

Scope and content

The Chairman of the Standing Group produced a limited number of memoranda each year. These bore the acronym CSGM. Only memoranda dealing with an important issue or referring to an important document were kept.
Some CSGM documents were reports sent twice a week by the SG Chairman to the Chairman of the Military Committee (MC). The latter was thus kept informed of the work accomplished by the SG and the Military Representatives Committee (MRC).
The information provided was of administrative nature and focused on MRC meetings, staff changes, the administration and organization of the SG and its subordinate groups, reports to and from the SG, as well as SG activity reports.
Other CSGM documents gave the SG Chairman's view on military preparedness. The document generally came with an activity report and an action plan drafted by the SG secretariat. Further CSGMs dealt with documents and telegrams sent to military representatives.
