Treaties (Founding Treaties) and the Treaties of the European Union

Description of Treaties (Founding Treaties) provided by the European Union Commission: The establishment of the first “Community”, the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC), was the starting point for over fifty years of European treaty-making. From 1951 (ECSC Treaty) to 2001(Treaty of Nice), no fewer than sixteen treaties were signed. This series of treaties did far more than simply amend the original text: new treaties were born and gradually extended the family.Here is the list of the principal treaties:

• The Treaty establishing the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC), signed in Paris in 1951. This treaty expired on 23 July 2002.

• The Treaty establishing the European Economic Community (EEC), signed in Rome in 1957.

• The Treaty establishing the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom), signed in Rome in 1957.

• The Single European Act (SEA), signed in Luxembourg in 1986.

• The Treaty on European Union (TEU), signed in Maastricht in 1992.

• The Treaty of Amsterdam, signed on 2 October 1997.

• The Treaty of Nice, signed on 26 February 2001.

All these treaties have been amended on a number of occasions, in particular at the time of accession of new Member States in 1973 (Denmark, Ireland and the United Kingdom), in 1981 (Greece), in 1986 (Spain and Portugal), in 1995 (Austria, Finland and Sweden) and in 2004 (Czech Republic, Cyprus, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia). The European constitutional treaty, signed in October 2004, will repeal and replace by a single instrument all the existing treaties with the exception of the Euratom Treaty. This instrument will consolidate 50 years of European treaties. The Constitution will not enter into force until it has been ratified by the 25 Member States.
