Pan American Union

The International Union of American Republics was established in 1890 with the International Bureau of the American Republics as its official agency.

In 1910 at the 4th International Conference of American States, its name was changed to Union of American Republics, and that of the official agency to PAN AMERICAN UNION.

In 1948 the 9th International Conference of American States in Bogotá approved the Charter of the Organization of American States and the Pan American Union was designated its Secretariat.

When the Protocol of Buenos Aires, approved at the 3rd Special Inter-American Conference in 1967, entered into force in February, 1970, the Pan American Union became the General Secretariat of the Organization of American States.
