800 views

The accession treaty to the European Communities of the four candidate countries (Denmark, Ireland, Norway, the United Kingdom) were signed in Brussels on 22/01/1972. In the case of the United Kingdom, most of the major issues were resolved, in particular concerning the Commonwealth and the free circulation of industrial and agricultural goods, the liberalisation of capital movements, sterling balances, requests for tariff quotas and a number of other issues concerning the institutions, the ECSC, Euratom and the contractual obligations of the Communities. In the case of Ireland, agreement was reached on issues concerning fisheries and veterinary legislation. However, problems remain with regard to the automobile industry, imports and exports and capital movement. Negotiations with Denmark developed steadily and generally took place at a similar pace to those conducted with the United Kingdom. Among the main problems, solutions were found to issues regarding the fishing industry in Greenland and the Faroe Islands. Norway gave its approval to all of the transitional measures that resulted from the conference. Specific solutions were identified with regard to the Norwegian agricultural sector and fisheries. Franco Mario Malfatti, President of the CEC, was present, as was Belgian Prime Minister, Mark Eyskens.
