  1. This Report was prepared by the two Consultants hired by NATO, Mrs F. Péquin (France) and Mr. E.A. Thompson (USA) to implement the trial period for the declassification and public disclosure of NATO documents. To complete their task in the time allowed to them, the consultants shared the work and their report reflects this approach. The Report is drafted part in French and part in English and has not been translated. Part II of DES(92)1 describes the period 1949 to 1952 and is published here without the appendices. Part III, 1952 - 1958 is published without the annexes.
  2. This Report, which is a follow up to DES(92)1, was prepared by the two Consultants hired by NATO, Mrs F. Péquin (France) and Mr. E.A. Thompson (USA) to implement the trial period for the declassification and public disclosure of NATO documents. The two consultants have reviewed all the outstanding document series concerning the period 1949 - 1958. The Report is drafted part in French and part in English and has not been translated. These extracts of the report are published here without the annexes.
  3. Following the decision to initiate a second programme for the public disclosure of NATO Documents, the two consultants previously hired by the Organisation, Mrs F. Péquin (France) and Mr. E.A. Thompson (United States) were tasked with reviewing the documents covering the period 1959 to 1965. Mrs F. Péquin was subsequently replaced by Miss Annie-France Renaudin. It was decided that the consultants would have the ability to include documents issued several months after December 1965 if they represented the end of a special project. Moreover, certain series, particularly military documents issued before 1959 which had not yet been examined, have in large part, been included in the present report. The Report is drafted part in French and part in English and has not been translated. These extracts of the report are published here without the annexes.
