EXPIRY OF THE ECSC TREATY

Fifty years after entering into force, the Treaty expired as planned on 23 July 2002.

Before its expiry, it had been amended on various occasions by the following treaties:
Merger Treaty (Brussels 1965),
Treaties amending certain financial provisions (1970 and 1975),
Treaty on Greenland (1984),
Treaty on European Union (TEU, Maastricht, 1992),
Single European Act (1986),
Treaty of Amsterdam (1997),
Treaty of Nice (2001)
and the Treaties of Accession (1972, 1979, 1985 and 1994).

At the beginning of the 1990s, following extensive debate, its expiry was considered the best solution as opposed to renewing the Treaty or a compromise solution. Thus, the Commission proposed a gradual transition of these two sectors into the Treaty establishing the European Community. The rules of this Treaty have applied to the coal and steel trade since the expiry of the ECSC Treaty.

A protocol on the financial consequeneces of the expiry of the ECSC Treaty and on the research fund for coal and steel is annexed to the Treaty of Nice. This protocol provides for the transfer of all assets and liabilities of the ECSC to the European Community and for the use of the net worth of these assets and liabilities for research in the sectors related to the coal and steel industry.

Some decisions of February 2003 contain the necessary measures for the implementation of the provisions of the protocol, the financial guidelines and the provisions relating to the research fund for coal and steel.

AMDENDMENTS TO THE TREATY

The ECSC Treaty was amended by the following Treaties :

  • Treaty of Brussels, known as the "Merger Treaty" (1965)
    This Treaty replaced the three Councils of Ministers (EEC, ECSC and Euratom) on the one hand and the two Commissions (EEC, Euratom) and the High Authority (ECSC) on the other hand with a single Council and a single Commission. This administrative merger was supplemented by the institution of a single operative budget.
  • Treaty amending Certain Budgetary Provisions (1970)
    This Treaty replaced the system whereby the Communities were funded by contributions from Member States with that of own resources. It also put in place a single budget for the Communities.
  • Treaty amending Certain Financial Provisions (1975)
    This Treaty gave the European Parliament the right to reject the budget and to grant a discharge to the Commission for the implementation of the budget. It established a single Court of Auditors for the three Communities to monitor their accounts and financial management.
  • Treaty on Greenland (1984)
    This Treaty meant that the Treaties would no longer apply to Greenland and established special relations between the European Community and Greenland modelled on the rules which applied to overseas territories.
  • Single European Act (1986)
    The Single European Act was the first major reform of the Treaties. It extended the areas of qualified majority voting in the Council, increased the role of the European Parliament (cooperation procedure) and widened Community powers. It set the objective of achieving the internal market by 1992.
  • Treaty on European Union, known as the "Maastricht Treaty" (1992)
    The Maastricht Treaty brought the three Communities (Euratom, ECSC, EEC) and institutionalised cooperation in the fields of foreign policy, defence, police and justice together under one umbrella, the European Union. The EEC was renamed, becoming the EC. Furthermore, this Treaty created economic and monetary union, put in place new Community policies (education, culture) and increased the powers of the European Parliament (codecision procedure).
  • Treaty of Amsterdam (1997)
    The Treaty of Amsterdam increased the powers of the Union by creating a Community employment policy, transferring to the Communities some of the areas which were previously subject to intergovernmental cooperation in the fields of justice and home affairs, introducing measures aimed at bringing the Union closer to its citizens and enabling closer cooperation between certain Member States (enhanced cooperation). It also extended the codecision procedure and qualified majority voting and simplified and renumbered the articles of the Treaties.
  • Treaty of Nice (2001)
    The Treaty of Nice was essentially devoted to the "leftovers" of Amsterdam, i.e. the institutional problems linked to enlargement which were not resolved in 1997. It dealt with the make-up of the Commission, the weighting of votes in the Council and the extension of the areas of qualified majority voting. It simplified the rules on use of the enhanced cooperation procedure and made the judicial system more effective.

The ECSC Treaty was also amended by the following Treaties of Accession:

  • Treaty of Accession of the United Kingdom, Denmark and Ireland (1972), which increased the number of Member States of the European Community from six to nine.
  • Treaty of Accession of Greece (1979).
  • Treaty of Accession of Spain and Portugal (1985), which increased the number of Member States of the European Community from ten to twelve.
  • Treaty of Accession of Austria, Finland and Sweden (1994), which increased the number of Member States of the European Community to fifteen.
