519bis meeting– 4 November 1994
DECLASSIFICATION OF DOCUMENTS OF THE COMMITTEE OF MINISTERS
1. decided that in the future their decisions will not be classified "restricted", unless the Committee explicitly decides otherwise in a specific case. It is understood that the decisions concerning the application of Articles 32 and 54 of the European Convention on Human Rights which are currently classified "confidential" would continue to be classified as such;
2. encouraged the Secretariat to make more frequent use of the "unclassified" category for documents which pose no particular problem;
3. adopted the Procedure for granting public access to Council of Europe documents, replacing that adopted at their 337th meeting (September 1991, item 9, Appendix VIII), as it appears at Appendix 3 to the present volume of Decisions.
