Scope and content
Documents in the AC/15 chronological series report on the work of the PBEIST on the one hand, its relations with its subordinate sub-committees and with the SCEPC on the other hand. These include administrative and technical documents.
The work of the PBEIST dealt mainly with PBEIST programmes of work and annual activity reports to the SCEPC, programmes of work and activity reports or memoranda of PBEIST sub-committees, (excerpts of) SCEPC and PBEIST meeting records, (draft) terms of reference of PBEIST sub-committees, and studies on the relations between the PBEIST and the other CEP committees.
From a technical point of view, it is mainly questionnaires received or sent out by the PBEIST and replies thereto, reports and recommendations to the countries about the organization of their peacetime and wartime inland transport, standardization, terminology, and inventories of multilateral transport agreements.
