DRAFT TECHNICAL ANNEXES

WHEREAS:

The largest possible degree of international standardization of practice in many matters is important to safe, expeditious, and easy air navigation; and WHEREAS:

These matters typically involve problems of great variety, and complexity, and require that much new ground be explored; and WHEREAS:

Considerable progress has been made, during the discussions of the present Conference, in the development of codes of practice agreed upon as proper by the technicians participating in the discussions, but the time has been too limited, and the number of personnel able to participate directly too small, to permit carrying the discussions to final conviction of the adequacy or correctness of certain of the determinations here made;

2 Post, p. 59.—EDITOR. 3 Post, p. 87.-EDITOR. * Post, p. 91.-EDITOR,

The International Civil Aviation Conference RESOLVES:

That the drafts of annexes for an international civil aviation convention, which are attached heteto as Appendix V, be accepted by the Conference, upon the bases that:

(a) The drafts as now presented shall be accepted by the participating States for immediate and continuing study;

(b) They shall be accepted as constituting models of the desirable scope and arrangement of the several annexes;

(c) The participating States undertake to forward to the Government of the United States (or to the Provisional International Civil Aviation Organization if it shall in the meantime have been established), by May 1, 1945, any recommendations which they may have for necessary additions, deletions, or amendments;

(d) The Government of the United States (or the Provisional International Civil Aviation Organization) will transmit such suggestions to the other participating States in anticipation of meetings of the technical committees to be established by the Provisional International Civil Aviation Organization for dealing with the subject matter of the various documents, such meetings to be held as soon as practicable thereafter for the purpose of ultimate acceptance of the annexes in final form for attachment to a convention.

(e) Meanwhile, in so far as the Technical Subcommittees have been able to agree on recommended practices, the States of the world, bearing in mind their present international obligations, are urged to accept these practices as ones toward which the national practices of the several States should be directed as far and as rapidly as may prove practicable.

III

TECHNICAL PERSONNEL WHEREAS:

The development and maintenance of suitable international standards in matters relating to international air navigation will require constant analysis, by technically qualified personnel, of the development of the pertinent arts and of the various practices existing with respect thereto;

The International Civil Aviation Conference RESOLVES:

That the Provisional International Civil Aviation Organization, as soon as possible after its organization, should employ in its Secretariat a suitable body of personnel, expert in the fields of aeronautical science and practice in which continuing study will be particularly needed; and that such technically qualified members of the Secretariat should be charged to analyze and report to the Provisional International Civil Aviation Organization on problems relating to the drafting of international standards and recommended practices and to conduct and report on such other studies as will promote the safe and efficient conduct of international air transportation.
