Preface

This volume is the Thirty-Sixth Issue of Selected Decisions and Selected Documents of the International Monetary Fund. It includes decisions, interpretations, and resolutions of the Executive Board and the Board of Governors of the International Monetary Fund, as well as selected documents, to which frequent reference is made in the current activities of the Fund. In addition, it includes certain documents relating to the Fund, the United Nations, and other international organizations.

As with other recent issues, the number of decisions in force continues to increase, with the decision format tending to be longer given the use of summings up in lieu of formal decisions. Accordingly it has become necessary to delete certain decisions that were included in earlier issues, that is, those that only completed or called for reviews of decisions, those that lapsed, and those that were superseded by more recent decisions.

Wherever reference is made in these decisions and documents to a provision of the Fund’s Articles of Agreement or Rules and Regulations that has subsequently been renumbered by, or because of, the Second Amendment of the Fund’s Articles of Agreement (effective April 1, 1978), the corresponding provision currently in effect is cited in a footnote.

A compact disc (CD) containing the texts of the 36th Issue, the Articles of Agreement, and By-Laws, Rules and Regulations is available from the Fund.

Editor’s Note, July 24, 2012

The table that follows the United Nations Convention on the Privileges and Immunities of the Specialized Agencies (see pages 922–926) was replaced to show the list of IMF members that have undertaken to apply the Convention to the IMF as of July 12, 2012. The previous table showed the list of UN members that have acceded to the Convention as of December 31, 2010.
