September 2001, in order to remove any doubt that there may be Members of the Commission who might indirectly influence the Commissions free decision making process, it was decided to widen Article VII of the Statutes thus:. It was further suggested to include a new subdivision: Organisations referring to Orders or Award systems previously bestowed by state bodies in the past. Past Presidents of the Commission: Baron Alessandro Monti della Corte (*19021975) from 1962 to 1970; H.
Grand Duke Vladimir Kirilovich, Head of the Imperial House of Russia; H. But the intense and constant interest given to the Commission - either for or against its announcements - is to be considered a clear sign of the importance and authority which the scientific world has attributed the Commission.

In the past, there have been errors in scientific evaluation and interpretation, or times when the Commission exceeded its institutional role. Hence there was no justification in publishing a Register.
The Commission is a private body, the worth and seriousness of which wholly depends upon the worth and seriousness of its component Members. While we studied a number of applications for registration throughout this period, however, none met the requirement of longstanding uninterrupted tradition under the protection of Chiefs or of Houses of recognised sovereign rank.
