According to A/C.5/32/17 the United Nations nomenclature provides a rational and understandable system of organizational names, essential to establish certain norms that can be applied throughout the Secretariat.
ST/SGB/2015/3 promulgates the current organizational structure of the United Nations Secretariat.
The document ST/AI/409 provides guidelines on how to prepare an Organizational Manual.
