FOREWORD Terms of reference 1. This circular has been prepared in response to Resolution A15-21 adopted by the Assembly of the International Civil Aviation Organization at its Fifteenth Session in July 1965. The objective of this resolution, the text of which is given in Appendix 1, was to provide Contracting States with as much information as possible on co-operative agreements and arrangements concluded in the air transport field between governments and/or airlines. The Assembly considered that such information would be of value particularly to developing States, who had shown great interest in agreements and arrangements relating tp joint operating organizations and pooled services dealt with under Chapter XVI of the Chicago Convention. It made it clear that info.rmation should be sought both on agreements and arrangements in which governments participate - and therefore which must be registered with the Organization in accordance with Article 83 of the Convention - and on those concluded between airlines without governmental partici- pation. The information received was to be distributed to Contracting States in an appropriate form, with or without the comments of the ICAO Council. Action bv the ICAO Council 2. To implement this resolution, the Council directed the Secretariat i to draw States' attention to its fir st resolving clause which emphasized the importance of registering co-operative agreements and arrangements with ICAO in accordance with the provisions of the Convention ii to circulate a list indicating the main types of co-operative agreement and arrangement known to exist or to have existed between governments and/or airlines and iii to invite States wishing to provide any information pursuant to clause 2 of the resolution, to present it in the form of specimen agreements of the kind indicated or any other relevant information. A letter was thus sent to States in May 1966 requesting them to forward preferably before September 1966, any material which they proposed to make available in response to Resolution A1 5-2 1. 3. The replies received to this letter were not as complete as had been hoped. However, the Council, after considering a report of the Secretariat on the material gathered, decided that a brief summary of this material should, pursuant to clause 3 of the resolution, be distributed to States, without any Council comments, as an ICAO Circular to which would be appended one or two specimens of each type of co-operative agreement and arrangement known to exist.
