Decisions of the General Assembly are published in the sessional cumulation of resolutions and decisions. They are not issued as individual documents and have no document series symbol assigned to them.
From 1945-1975, decisions were unnumbered.
At the 31st session (1976), a numbering system similar to that for resolutions was established:
pattern: General Assembly decision session/sequential number
For decisions adopted at regular sessions:
the first set of numbers is reserved for decisions related to elections and appointments,
the second set for decisions related to matters other than elections and appointments.
Sessional Cumulations of Resolutions and Decisions
For each session of the General Assembly, resolutions and decisions are compiled and issued as a supplement to the General Assembly Official Records (GAOR).
For special and emergency special sessions, as well as originally for regular sessions, this cumulation has been the final supplement.
For regular sessions, starting with the 42nd session, the document has been assigned number 49, and is Supplement 49 to the GAOR.
Currently, there are usually 3 volumes:
Vol. I: Resolutions adopted September - December
Vol. II: Decisions adopted September - December
Vol. III: Resolutions and decisions adopted January - the close of the session in September
