Administrative history

From 1950 (see C/4-D-4/9 and C-M(55)71), the Council (with the support of the Delegations) affirmed the need for Commodity Boards responsible for: -establishing priority civil and military requirements in wartime -comparing requirements and available resources -proposing the agreements needed. France proposed that this body be created in peacetime so that priorities could be coordinated in advance. There was no unanimity on this proposal. On 31 January 1956, subject to confirmation by those countries which were hesitating, the Senior Civil Emergency Planning Committee (AC/98) approved the creation of AC/101 (see AC/98-R/1). F.D. Gregh (ASG for Economic and Financial Affairs) was appointed Chairman of AC/101. One representative per member nation, the representative of the Standing Group Liaison Office in Paris and a SHAPE representative also attended the meetings. AC/101 was tasked with finalizing the draft terms of reference for a Central Supplies Agency (CSA) presented by France (AC/101-D/1), i.e.: -decide whether the body should exist in peacetime or wartime-establish the composition and terms of reference of this body. AC/101 delegated this task to a sub-group consisting of representatives of the United States, France, the Netherlands, Italy and the United Kingdom.
