The Setting up of the New Organisation
Immediately after signing the Charter, the delegates at San Francisco approved an agreement on ‘Interim Arrangements’. This established a preparatory commission representing all who signed the Charter. This was to begin making preparations for the new organisation, even before it was formally established (which would occur only when the necessary ratifications had been received). It would start setting up the Secretariat; establish the new International Court; and make arrangements for the first meetings of the Assembly and other UN bodies. It would also recommend a permanent location for the new organisation — the responsibility that proved the most lengthy and intractable of its tasks.
