Founding Treaties of the European Union

Treaty Establishing the European Coal and Steel Community signed in Paris in 1951, Treaty Establishing the European Economic Community signed in Rome in 1957 and Treaty Establishing the European Atomic Energy Community are the Treaties that serve the basis for the European Union. Treaty on European Union signed in Maastricht in 1992 have also been included in these documents which are also known as the Founding Treaties.

Since it was concluded for a period of 50 years, Treaty Establishing the European Coal and Steel Community expired on 23 July 2002. Amendments have also been made to the Founding Treaties on certain occasions. Most significant amendments were made through the following documents: Single European Act (1987), Treaty of Amsterdam (1999), Treaty of Nice (2003) and Treaty of Lisbon (2009).

Besides the amendments made to the content, the title of Treaty Establishing the European Economic Community was changed at certain occassions. First, with the Treaty on European Union entering into force on 1 November 1993, the title of Treaty on European Economic Community was replaced by Treaty Establishing the European Community. With Treaty of Lisbon entering into force on 1 December 2009, the title of Treaty Establishing the European Community was replaced by Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.

Treaty on European Union and Treaty Establishing the European Atomic Energy Community still exist with the same titles.
