Dates of existence



RECORD-SG/SC documents were records of meetings organized by the SG/SC Director. The role of the Standing Group Steering Committee (SG/SC) was to assist the Director of the Standing Committee (hereinafter referred to as SG). The SG/SC started off as an ad hoc group. It became a committee on 28 June 1951, according to document RECORD-SG/SC-002 entitled "second SG/SC meeting". There is no document which officially approved the creation and terms of reference of the SG/SC. The SG/SC meetings were held at the SG headquarters, in the SG conference room at the Pentagon. They were attended by: -a Chairman (SG Director until 1961, then rotating chairmanship between the three SG nations),- senior SG representatives or their deputies,-the SG Secretary, SACEUR,-guests (depending on the agenda),-the representative of the SG Liaison Office was sometimes invited as an observer. At the meetings: •the SG Director informed attendees about the SG's latest decisions, but also about issues to be solved, •the three SG international working teams (France, UK and US) took note of those issues and produced roadmaps for the Military Representatives Committee (MRC). The RECORD-SG/SC chronological series was closed on 2 March 1965 (RECORD-SG/SC-574).
