Joint Intelligence Committee

The Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC) was responsible to the Defence Committee for:

  • the control, through the Controller of Joint Intelligence, of the intelligence policy of the Joint Intelligence machinery;
  • the preparation of reports, appreciations, etc, as required; and
  • liaison with the Joint Planning Committee and the appropriate Defence scientific advisory body.

The JIC operated concurrently with the Joint Intelligence Bureau (JIB) following the latter's establishment in 1947. The National Intelligence Committee replaced the JIC in 1969.

Only one record series has been registered for the JIC. However, copies of JIC documents can be found in many other series, particularly in A1209, A1945 and A1838.
