Scope and content

The Registry Office was established to receive and register all claims and supporting documentation submitted to the United Nations Compensation Commission (UNCC). S-1950 contains the reports and recommendations of the panel of Commissioners for consideration by the Governing Council, in addition to Procedural Orders. The function of S-1950 is derived from the Secretary-General’s bulletin: Records of the United Nations Compensation Commission (ST/SGB/2007/10), dated 29 June 2007.

The reports and recommendations of the panels of Commissioners are organized by claim and instalment. Categories “A-F” are represented in addition to Palestinian late claims. The reports and recommendations feature the original signatures of the Commissioners. However, there are instances where the original signatures are not present. In addition, while there are Procedural Orders with original signatures of the Commissioners for Categories “D, E, F” claims, there are also instances where the original signatures are missing.

S-1950 contains 25 official bound volumes titled “Reports of the Panels of Commissioners.” These volumes collect the final versions of reports and recommendations by the panels of Commissioners that were made available to the general public. In addition, there are bound volumes titled “United Nations Security Council Resolutions Pertaining to the UNCC”; “Decisions of the UNCC Governing Council” (volumes 1 and 2); and “Article 41: Reports of the Executive Secretary.” All of the volumes were published in 2014.
