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 overseas countries and territories (OCTs) are 26 countries or territories outside mainland Europe — essentially small islands – constitutionally tied with one of the following Member States: Denmark, France, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. (official list) that have a special relationship with one of the Member States of the European Community: 12 with the UK, 7 with France, 6 with the Netherlands, 1 with Denmark. Together with other countries they benefit from the European Development Fund (EDF) [1], not the En:Regional policy.

Notes:

  • Bermuda has this status but still never applied to benefit from it.
  • Mayotte should switch its existing status in January 2014, after a transition period from an OCT to an outermost region.
