IUCr 1996 17th General Assembly - Review of existing Commissions

The President reported that the Executive Committee had decided to recommend to the General Assembly that (a) the Commission on Crystallographic Data should be terminated and replaced by a Committee on Crystallographic Databases with representatives from the major databases and (b) the Commission on Crystallographic Apparatus should be renamed the Commission on High Pressure.

He noted that the although the Commission on Crystallographic Apparatus had been very important in the early years of the Union, the tasks had to a large extent been taken over by the other Commissions of the Union. The present Commission on Crystallographic Apparatus had a High Pressure sub-group which had become increasingly important. The Executive Committee wished to recognize this change of emphasis.

The General Assembly approved both recommendations.
