    Andorre :


Declaration contained in a letter from the Minister for External Relations of Andorra, dated 2 November 2000, handed to the Secretary General at the time of signature of the instrument on 4 November 2000 - Or. Fr.

The Government of the Principality of Andorra wishes this act of signature to be interpreted as a sign in favour of European solidarity. With the signature of the European Social Charter (revised), the Principality of Andorra joins the majority of member States of the Council of Europe which have recognised the Charter's principles. Nevertheless, the particular structure of the Andorran society and economy commit the Principality of Andorra to protect the essential elements of its specificity, and in this view, some articles of the European Social Charter (revised) seem to present difficulties for an immediate ratification.

[(*)   Declaration contained in a Note Verbale from the Permanent Representation of Romania, dated 16 April 2004, registered at the Secretariat General on 21 April 2004 - Or. Engl.

The Permanent Representation of Romania informs the Secretariat that the instrument of ratification no. 490 deposited by Romania on 7 May 1999 contains an error. The said instrument of ratification states under item 1 that Romania considers itself bound by Article 26, while the Act no. 74 of 3 May 1999 by which the Parliament of Romania ratified the European Social Charter (revised) made no reference to Article 26.
The Permanent Representation of Romania to the Council of Europe also informs the Secretariat that the said Law stipulates that Romania considers itself bound by Article 25 of the European Social Charter (revised). Article 25 was not notified at the time when the instrument of ratification was deposited.
Given the above, the Permanent Representation of Romania declares that under item 1 of the instrument of ratification no. 490 deposited by Romania, Article 26 should be read as Article 25.
The Permanent Representation of Romania attaches the Romanian version of the Act no. 74 of 3 May 1999 and the English translation thereof.
Note by the Secretariat : the text of this Act is available upon request to the Treaty Office.]
