International Organizations in Which the United States Participates

INTERNATIONAL TECHNICAL COMMITTEE OF AERIAL LEGAL EXPERTS

As early as 1899 the French government had convened an international aeronautical congress, which was followed by others at intervals of several years. The early congresses were concerned mainly with mechanical problems, although from the beginning some attention was paid to the legal aspects.1 As aviation progressed the topics discussed at the conferences became more differentiated and in August 1923 the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs addressed a note to its foreign representatives stating that it intended to call an international conference on private aerial law in November.2

As several of the governments desired notice of the matters to be discussed, the conference was postponed until October 1925.3 The call for the conference was accompanied by a draft of an international convention on the responsibility of the carrier by air. The United States was represented by an observer.

The conference recommended that a special committee be appointed to continue its work and prepare resolutions for the next congress.4 In January 1926 the French government submitted to the several governments a proposal regarding the formation of the Comité international technique d'experts juridiques aériens and the first meeting was held in May of that year.5
