The EU has been a full participant, but not a voting member, in the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) since the latter’s establishment in 1961. It has also been a full member, with voting rights, in the OECD’s quasi-autonomous, Development Assistance Committee (DAC) since its beginning as the Development Assistance Group (DAG) in 1960.
