The signing and ratification of the Rome Treaties

Signing and ratification of the Rome Treaties

The Treaties establishing the European Economic Community (EEC) and the European Atomic Energy Community (EAEC), negotiated in Val Duchesse in June 1956 at the Intergovernmental Conference for the Common Market and Euratom, were signed by representatives of the six Member States of the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC), namely the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG), Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands, on 25 March 1957.

They were then debated and ratified by the national parliaments of the six signatory countries between May and December 1957. The treaties could thus enter into force on 1 January 1958.
