KEY TERMS

Mixed agreement: if the subject matter of an agreement does not fall under the exclusive competence of the EU (here, the agreement also involves Euratom), EU countries also have to sign the agreement.

Mixed agreements may also require that an internal EU act is adopted to share out the obligations between the EU countries and the EU.
