Note

"This fonds was re-processed in 2016 - including appraisal, rehousing, and declassification. All the records were originally under UN Archives Departmental Archival Group (fonds), DAG-13/3.11, which was processed into series S-0530 in 2000. The reprocessing work in 2016 involved arranging records into the other series currently in the fonds. "
