You're reading: Europe-Ukraine: more important technical stuff

At the end of that blog, I noted some suggestions that, if it wasn’t possible to sign and ratify the Association Agreement, it might be possible for some elements of the Agreement to enter into force provisionally.

In theory, it is possible for some parts of an Association Agreement to be applied provisionally ahead of ratification by national parliaments. In EU jargon, the parts which can in theory be applied provisionally are the “Community Competence” elements.

This could include many of the provisions of the DCFTA. Thus, should member states wish this to happen, some bits of the Association Agreement could enter into force before the Association Agreement as a whole had been ratified by all the national Parliaments.
