Abstract

This article is an attempt to a thorough analysis of the EC's current law and policy in the field of international trade. It deals with the existing EC's common commercial policy competence from the Treaty of Nice up to the European Convention's days. Thus, a policy and legal analysis of EC trade policy is provided to diagnose whether changes made to Article 133 EC are adequate to the current needs of the EC in the international trade forum. It concludes that stagnation continues to be present, and there seems to be a revival of the ERTA principle.

Keywords: international trade, EC common commercial policy, Nice Treaty, European Convention, Article 133 EC
