General Assembly documents symbols
UN documents have a symbol, which serves as a unique identifier. Each symbol is composed of letters and numbers, which indicates the organ to which the document is being submitted or the organ that is issuing the document. For example, all documents of the General Assembly start with A/:
- The basic format for the symbols documents is: A/[session]/[sequential number], e. g., A/67/1. From 1946 to 1975, the format was A/[sequential number], e.g., A/9601.
Meetings records numbering system
Statements made and actions taken during General Assembly meetings are documented as verbatim records, identified by the suffix "/PV." within the document symbol.
The full text of recent meeting records can be retrieved through UNBISnet and the Official Document System of the United Nations (ODS).
From the 55th session onwards, the full text is also posted at the UN Documentation Centre.
Plenary meetings of the General Assembly have consistently been entitled to verbatim coverage since the 5th session.
