Judgment of the Court of Justice, Aid for rationalization of mining regions, case 70/72 (12 July 1973)

Extract from the judgment in the case: Commission of the European Communities v the Federal Republic of Germany (Aid for rationalisation of mining regions) relating to the admissibility of an action for failure to fulfil an obligation. It emerges from this judgment that it is a matter for the Community authorities responsible for ensuring that the requirements of the Treaty are observed to take measures with a view to establishing that a State has failed to fulfil its obligations under the Treaty. In this particular case, the Commission may bring before the Court an action for failure to fulfil an obligation since it has required from Germany, without success, the repayment of grants awarded in breach of the Treaty.
