United Nations Security Council Resolution 1, adopted without a vote on January 25, 1946, called for the Military Staff Committee to meet for the first time in London on February 1, 1946. The Committee was to be composed of the Chiefs of Staff of the military organizations of the five permanent members. The Committee's formation had been called for under Article 47 of the United Nations Charter, and this resolution directed the Committee to convene to make proposals for the body's organisation and standard procedures.

The Security Council also had "Discussion of the best means of arriving at the conclusion of the special agreements [for the provision of armed forces and related facilities] referred to in the Charter (Article 43)" on its agenda for the meeting, though this item was deferred. The United Nations General Assembly passed its first resolution the previous day.
