Eurozone Member States experiencing, or being threatened by, severe financing problems can request financial assistance, which can come in different forms. On 27 September 2012, the ESM entered into force. This happened a few months later than hoped due to uncertainty linked to a September ruling by Germany's Constitutional Court on the compatibility of the treaty with the country's law. On 8 October 2012, its Board of Governors - essentially euro area Ministers for Finance headed by Jean-Claude Juncker - held its inaugural meeting, with inaugural Board of Directors' meeting scheduled the day after. All 17 euro area Member States have ratified the ESM treaty. 00:01:11
