System of arrangement

Standing Group documents have been assembled in eight major types: Standing Group documents, Standing Group memoranda, memoranda of the Standing Group Chairman or representatives, memoranda of the Planning Staff Director and Assistant Director, Standing Group meeting records, Standing Group Steering Committee agendas, Standing Group Steering Committee meeting records, and Standing Group Steering Committee briefings.
The documents, organized in two hundred and sixty-five subjects, bear the reference SG followed by a number (for example, SG 1, SG 1/1, SG 1/2, SG 1/3, SG 1/4, SG 1/5, SG 1/6 and SG 1/7 for the first subject, then SG 2 to SG 2/9 for the second subject). Indexes of the documents are available for 1951 and 1952 in the form of documents without references, and for 1961 to 1966 under the reference CSR(SG) followed by a number (CSR(SG)1).
Memoranda of the Standing Group Chairman or representatives were issued with the reference CSGM followed by a number and the year (CSGM-2-51) from 1951 to 1966 inclusive, and memoranda of the Standing Group Planning Staff Director or Assistant Director had the reference DSGM followed by a number and the year (DSGM-2-49) from 1949 to 1966 inclusive, except for the years 1955, 1959, 1962 and 1963.
Standing Group memoranda have the reference SGM, or even SGM(Paris) for 1956 documents, followed by a number and the year (for example, SGM-1-49, SGM-1-50
and SGM(Paris)-1-56).
From the second meeting in 1949, Standing Group meeting records bear the reference SG followed by the number of the meeting (“SG 11th Meeting”, or “SG 11e réunion” in French). From September 1958 the reference of Standing Group meetings became “Record-SG“ (in English) and “PV-SG” (in French), followed by the meeting number. The records of informal meetings have varying references: “SG Meeting”, “SG Informal Meeting”,
“SG Informal Meeting - Paris”, “Note for Record - SG Inf Mtg”, “Note for Record - Inf SG Mtg”,
“Note for Record - Informal Mtg” for documents in English,
and “Note pour les Archives - Réunion non officielle du Groupe permanent” for documents in French. Some records have no reference. For some special meetings of the Standing Group, in French the references “SG Réunion”, “SG Réunion Officieuse” and “SG Réunion Spéciale” are used, and “SG Meeting” or “SG Special Meeting” in English. Some informal meeting records have no reference.
Steering Committee meeting agendas have the reference “Agenda-SC” followed by a number.
From the second meeting in 1949, Standing Group Steering Committee meeting records bear the reference “Steering Committee” followed by the number of the meeting (“Steering Committee 2nd Meeting”) then, from September 1958, the reference “Record-SC” followed by the meeting number (for example “Record-SC 351”). Documents concerning informal meetings of the Standing Group Steering Committee bear varying references ("Note for Record Inf. SC Mtg”, “Note for Record - SC Inf Mtg”, “Note for Record - Inf SC Mtg”, “Note for Record - Informal SC Mtg”, “Note for Record - SC Informal Meeting”, “Informal Steering Committee Mtg”, “Informal Steering Cmte Mtg”, “Informal Steering Committee Meeting”), with or without the date of the meeting. Some informal or restricted meeting records have no reference. The few special meetings of the Steering Committee have varying references (for example, “Steering Committee Special Meeting”, “Reconstituted Steering Committee 1st Meeting”, “Note for Record - SC Mtg”).
Standing Group Steering Committee meeting briefings were distributed with the reference “Brief-SC” followed by a number (“Brief-SC 567”).
