The ESA Headquarters in Paris stored the files arranged by topics and according a related filing system.
The fonds was deposited at the HAEU under the terms of the deposit contract signed on 12 May 1989.
Content and Structure
The core of the ESC fonds is a master copy of official issues, starting from the documents relating to the Ministerial Conferences from the various ad hoc groups.
The collection of the Legal Affairs Department documents sheds light on the meticulous definition of the articles making up the Convention.
The serie's scheme reflects the informal structure built around two ministerial bodies, which emanated from the ad hoc groups. Particular care was devoted to the minutes and to the reports. The master set of official issues is almost complete, covering all the ministerial steps.
