    Additional provisions relating to documents Retour au sommaire Atteindre l'élement suivant

      i. - Distribution and classification of Assembly and Committee documents See progress
report of the Bureau and the Standing Committee, Doc. 9203, para.
6, of which the Assembly took note on 24 September 2001. Regarding
access to Council of Europe documents, see in particular Resolution
(2001) 6 of the Committee of Ministers.

      1. All documents of the Parliamentary Assembly not subject to any classification are public.
      2. This applies in particular to verbatim reports of Assembly debates (CR), procedural minutes (PV), working papers including reports, questions, communications, etc. (Doc.), texts adopted, orders of the day, information documents (AS/Inf), the Assembly List and other various publications. It applies also to all committee documents with the reference AS/… unless the competent committee or body has decided otherwise.
      3. These documents are freely available and may be freely quoted. As far as possible they will also be found on the Parliamentary Assembly website.
      4. Draft minutes of the Bureau and of committee meetings remain confidential at least until approved by the following Bureau or committee meeting after which they can be released on request.
      5. If a committee decides to classify some of its working papers or documents the following possibilities exist:
      Restricted documents will be declassified one year after being issued. They can be made available on request and under the responsibility of the committee concerned or the Secretary General of the Assembly but may not be publicly quoted without special authorisation.
      Confidential documents will be declassified ten years after being issued. Unless the President of the Assembly or the Chairperson of the committee decides otherwise, they are only made available to members of the body concerned and some officials and must not be quoted.
      Secret documents will be declassified thirty years after being issued. A register listing the numbered copies should be kept by the secretariat concerned.
      6. However, on receipt of a well-founded request, the President of the Assembly has the authority, after consulting the Bureau or the Chairperson of the committee concerned, to allow consultation and quotation of all these types of documents.
