Each year the European Union concludes a number of Agreements with third countries, as well as with international organisations. These Agreements may be of an extensive nature, such as Trade, Cooperation and Development and Association Agreements or they may cover a wide range of specific subjects including: textiles; fisheries; customs; science and technology; transport; etc.

Agreements with third countries or organisations may also be concluded by the European Union under the terms laid down in Article 37 of the Treaty on European Union, for matters within the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP).

Information concerning these Agreements, including those in the process of being approved, can be obtained through this website. This information will be up-dated daily and will include dates of signature, approval and entry into force.

This website also includes information concerning Conventions concluded between the Member States of the European Union in certain fields, such as Police and Judicial Cooperation in Criminal Matters, Company Law and Double Taxation.
