III. RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED ON THE REPORTS OF THE SIXTH COMMITTEE
254. Registration and publication of treaties and international agreements
AThe General Assembly, Considering that the United Nations Charter requires that treaties and international agreements be not only registered but also published as soon as possible; and Considering that the practical value, for Governments, scientific institutions and all the circles concerned, of publishing treaties and international agreements also depends in large measure upon the degree of accuracy and precision of the published translations, Instructs the Secretary-General to take all the necessary steps to ensure that registered treaties or agreements shall be published with the least possible delay and that the translations shall reach the highest possible level of accuracy and precision. Hundred and fifty-fifth plenary meeting,
3 November 1948.
BThe General Assembly, Having considered the report of the Secretary-General on the registration and publication of treaties and international agreements (A/613), Having noted that relatively few treaties and other international agreements have been registered to date, and that less than half of the number of States Members of the United Nations have registered any treaties or other international agreements, Considering that all Member States have by Article 102 of the Charter, assumed the obligation to register with the Secretariat every treaty and every international agreement entered into by them after the coming into force of the Charter, Having noted that resolution 172 (II) of 14 November 1947 drew the attention of Member States to this obligation, Therefore requests that each of the Member States take cognizance of its obligation under Article 102 and take immediate steps to fulfil this obligation. Hundred and fifty-fifth plenary meeting,
3 November 1948.
