Chapter Summary

Various new means have been introduced into accession treaty practice used in the fifth and sixth Accession Treaties to allow a certain flexibility to smooth the entry of the incoming countries but without allowing permanent derogations from the acquis communautaire. Transitional arrangements allow for the temporary derogations from provisions of the acquis. This chapter first looks at how transitional arrangements are negotiated. It outlines the structure of the accession treaties. The chapter considers the scope for emergency economic safeguard measures under an accession treaty, which is open to 'old' or 'new', Member States or both, depending on the circumstances. Measures designed to protect against the serious deterioration of a given sector of the economy or a given region are incorporated into the 2003 Accession Treaty in Article 37 of the Act of Accession.

Keywords: accession treaties; emergency economic safeguard measures; transitional arrangements
