Note 1 This document has been classified restricted at the date of issue. Unless the Committee of Ministers decides otherwise, it will be declassified according to the rules set up in Resolution Res(2001)6 on access to Council of Europe documents.
Note 2 A new draft Resolution on the status of the offices was appended to document RAP-INF(2005)3 for submission to the Deputies. As it was agreed to propose the renewal of the terms of reference already contained in the Appendix to Resolution Res(99)9, a new Resolution was not considered necessary for the time being. However, at the meeting, Delegations requested that the list of information offices and centres be appended to the new Resolution: this list is appended to the present Notes on the Agenda for information.
