    What is the difference between un compte rendu and un proces verbal? Aren't they both minutes?

    "tous les rapports et les comptes rendus concernant le comité"... all the reports and records regarding the committee?

    Yess, they are both minutes. But "compte rendu" can also be by oral, whereas "proces verbal" is more a formal paper.
