"The American Psychiatric Association's Committee on Nomenclature and Statistics has been participating during the past few years, with the U. S. Committee on Classification of Diseases, in the World Health Organization's Revision Conferences in preparation for the Eighth Revision of the International Classification of Diseases. Those conferences are now terminated. In May, 1966, a classification of mental disorders similar to the following will be presented to the World Health Assembly for approval. This classification (and the other parts of the International Classification of Diseases) will be considered by professional groups and government agencies throughout the world. It is scheduled for adoption by member governments some time in 1967 to become effective that year or later. In adopting it, any country may make reservations regarding specific terms in the classification. The Committee on Nomenclature and Classification will prepare recommendations on how best to bring a revised version of the APA classification into relation with the International Classification of Diseases, Eighth Revision. The Committee will, consequently, formulate a draft revision of this Manual."--Introduction.
