Association Agreement Eec Turkey

It should be noted that the EEC Treaty itself provided, in Part 4, for an association of the overseas dependencies of France, Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands with the common market. Some of the characteristics of this association will be discussed later in the framework of the ERC agreement with African states. 4 Bulletin of the EC, March 1964 (7th year, no. 3), p. 27-28Google Scholar, and June 1964 (7th year, No. 6), p. 10-11. Other states that expressed interest in the association agreements were Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Cyprus and Tunisia. 61 The „special meeting” between the ECSC Council of Ministers and the Uk Government, which can be convened for discussions on matters within the specific competences of the Council of Ministers of Member State governments, is a second, hithert insignificant, feature within the institutional framework of the EGKS-UK association. The governments of the ECSC member states, the HIGH authority of the ECSC or the UK government may attend a „special meeting”. The establishment of the „special session” seems to be a check on the High Authority, most likely motivated by the fear that this institution would exceed its powers to participate in the work of the Association Council.

See Article 10 of the CECA-UK agreement and Soto, p. 234. CustomsThe EU-Turkey customs union was created in 1996 by the so-called Ankara Agreement (Ankara Agreement, JO L 217 of 29 December 1964). This agreement has created a common customs territory: since then, goods manufactured on customs territory or imported into customs territory and processed by customs can be collected without customs duties. In addition, a common external fare has been set up (for more information on the subject, see transport and customs). 62 Art. 65, paragraphs 3 to 4, of the Greek convention and Article 23 of the Turkish agreement. After the ratification of the Greek agreement, the consensus procedures of the Community representatives had to be defined.

The agreed solution was a unanimous vote of the EEC Council of Ministers after hearing from the Cee Commission, with the exception of the Community`s trade policy, in which case the voting rules for Articles 110-116 of the EEC Treaty apply. This procedure may be changed at the end of the second stage of the common market transitional period. The work of the EEC institutions may also be necessary with regard to the decisions and recommendations of the Association Council, since the EEC Council of Ministers is the Serb responsible for their implementation. Here, too, there must be a unanimous vote in this body, after hearing from the EEC Commission. For more details on the internal agreement procedure, see Articles 58-64 of the Greek Agreement of 18 February 1963 (volume 6), 350/63-356/63.Google Scholar 37. An interesting provision relating to the harmonisation of the external trade policy of the Community and Greece concerns the case of a third country applying for membership of the Community as an associate member or full member. In this case, the Community and Greece must consult each other to resolve the new relations between Greece and the future associate member of the Ou, taking full account of the Greek and EEC interests.
