The report of the Commission on International Tables had been distributed to the National Committees and the Commissions in May 1996 and is reprinted in Annex I, Appendix D.
The President reported that the Executive Committee had decided that all volumes in the International Tables series should be numbered alphabetically from A to Z (i.e. labels such as A1 would not be used). He also reported that the Executive Committee had approved two new volumes: Volume F Macromolecular Crystallography edited by M. G. Rossmann and E. Arnold and Volume G Crystallographic Information edited by S. R. Hall and B. McMahon. He was delighted that Professor Rossmann and Professor Arnold had agreed to take on the important task of Volume F with great enthusiasm and felt that Volume G would set the standards for the various implementations of CIF (Crystallographic Information File).
The report was accepted by the General Assembly.
