§ 213.1 Background and purpose.
(a) The National Security Council and the Federal Communications
Commission have agreed upon a precedence system for the expeditious
handling of messages and calls transmitted over Government and public
correspondence facilities in all types of situations from peacetime to
massive nuclear attack. Effectuation of that system requires that the
Director issue a circular and that the Commission concurrently issue an
order prescribing the standards, procedures, policies, and regulations
that together, constitute this single integrated precedence system.
(b) In conformity with that agreement the National Security Council is
issuing this circular the purpose of which is to prescribe, on behalf
of the President, that part of those standards, procedures, policies,
and regulations which are within the cognizance of the NSC. No
significance should be attached to the fact that slightly different
terms are used in their circular from those used in the companion order
of the FCC. Those differences result from differences in terms in the
basic legal authorities of the director and the Commission rather than
from an intent to denote a distinction in purpose or effect.
