History

The AC/95 chronological series contains the records of the Working Group to Examine the United States Proposal for Reorganization of the Civil Emergency Planning Structure. This working group was set up following a request by the United States to reorganize the structure of the committees tasked with preparing for a future war. This proposal was made at the North Atlantic Council meeting on 13 July 1955 (see C-M(55)75) with a view to overcoming a number of shortfalls in peacetime emergency planning, in particular with regard to the co-ordination of the various committees and the resources used to issue general policy guidelines(1). From the outset, the Working Group focused its efforts on the creation of a committee that would first be referred to as the Steering Committee on Civil Emergency Planning (SCCEP) and later as the Senior Civil Emergency Planning Committee (SCEPC). This committee was tasked with providing advice to the Council on emergency planning, co-ordinating the activities of the planning boards and committees responsible for civil emergency planning, and setting up working groups on more specific matters. The Working Group to Examine the United States Proposal for Reorganization of the Civil Emergency Planning Structure was eliminated when the Senior Civil Emergency Planning Committee was established(2).
