Advisory Committee's Opinions

Before the Ministerial Council may determine the existence of a breach by a Party of its obligations under the Energy Community Treaty, the current Presidency and Vice-Presidency are required to ask the Advisory Committee for its Opinion on the case at hand.

This page displays those dispute settlement cases where the Advisory Committee was asked to give its opinion. As of March 2020, there has been 22 Advisory Committee opinions.

  • Following the Advisory Committee's Opinion, four of the 22 cases have been rectified.
  • There are 18 cases where the procedure under Article 91 of the Treaty was closed with adoption of a Ministerial Council decision, but the breach has not been rectified yet.
  • Out of the 18 cases, there are three where the breaches have not been rectified despite adoption of Ministerial Council decisions imposing measures under Article 92 of the Treaty.
