Category:Outermost regions of the European Union
Two parts of the treaty of the European Community deal with special relationships: Article 299 which sets out the territories to which the treaty applies, supplemented by the accession treaties; and Articles 182-188 and Annex II on association with the non-European countries and territories which have special relations with the member states.
The outermost regions are 8 regions (5 in France, 2 in Portugal, 1 in Spain) where EC law applies, but where it is possible to derogate to common EC legislation to take account of their remoteness. 
- Saint-Martin (France), unlike Saint-Barthélemy, did not change its existing status of outermost region to an OCT when it was separated from Guadeloupe to become a new French overseas collectivity.
- Mayotte should switch from its current status of OCT to the status of an outermost region on January 1, 2014.
