TREATY ESTABLISHING THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC COMMUNITY, PART THREE - POLICY OF THE COMMUNITY, TITLE II - ECONOMIC POLICY, CHAPTER 3: COMMERCIAL POLICY, ARTICLE 115


++++

Article 115

In order to ensure that the execution of measures of commercial policy taken in accordance with this Treaty by any Member State is not obstructed by deflection of trade , or where differences between such measures lead to economic difficulties in one or more of the Member States , the Commission shall recommend the methods for the requisite cooperation between Member States . Failing this , the Commission shall authorise Member States to take the necessary protective measures , the conditions and details of which it shall determine .

In case of urgency during the transitional period , Member States may themselves take the necessary measures and shall notify them to the other Member States and to the Commission , which may decide that the States concerned shall amend or abolish such measures .

In the selection of such measures , priority shall be given to those which cause the least disturbance to the functioning of the common market and which take into account the need to expedite , as far as possible , the introduction of the common customs tariff .
