137th AC/135 Panel A Meeting
Held virtually on 01-04 March 2021

The 137th meeting of Panel A was virtually held from 1 to 4 March 2021 under the Chairmanship of Mr. Pierre-Yves GOURIOU, Head of Methods and International Affairs Section of NCB France. This meeting, as it has become the standard for several months, took place by videoconference with interpretation in the two official NATO languages (French/English). It brought together 71 participants from 47 nations (26 NATO and 21 non-NATO) from 5 continents + NSPA.
The meeting was hosted by the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) using the Cisco-Webex system. "This videoconference mode of work means that the AC/135 Panel A business is not interrupted despite the travel restrictions inherent in the pandemic. The debates from Canada to Japan or France to Australia, via the Middle East, despite the many time zones spanning eighteen hours, went well. Only the usual informal or bilateral exchanges on the sidelines of physical meetings are sorely lacking to be able to maintain the same efficiency in our actions”, said Pierre-Yves GOURIOU.
That meeting was also a great opportunity for Panel A members to warmly thank André Felten from NSPA, for his more than 40 years of investment within the NATO Codification System. André nowadays well known as “ACodP-1 father” has given us for years the guarantee of keeping our regulations' publications up-to-date even until the soon coming July 21' release. The Panel wishes the best in his future endeavors to André.
