Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 SOVEREIGNTY The significance of the principle of Supremacy of EU law and its development by the Court of Justice Loss of territories - productive land,industries and raw resources DOCTRINE OF SUPREMACY Early in the European Communitysdevelopment, the Court of Justice overturned this view. Supremacy of EU law Originally it was thought that the founding Treaties, like other international treaties, bound Member States with respect to international obligations, but allowed them to exercise national sovereignty internally, determining the domestic legal effects of their international obligations. Van Gen den Loos v Nederlandse Administratie der Belastingen(Case 26/62) the Court declared that The Community constitutes a new legal order in international law, for whosebenefit the states have limited their sovereign right, albeit within limited fields. EU law: treaty provisions, secondary legislation (regulations, directives, decisions), international agreements made by the EU, case law of the Court of Justice Costa v ENEL (Case 6/64) reiterated this statement: By contrast with ordinaryinternational Treaties, the EEC Treaty has created its own legal system which became an integral part of the legal system of the Member States The Court of Justice has developed this doctrine, there is no express Treaty reference to supremacy. Article 4 TEU requires Member States to take all measures to ensure fulfilment of Treaty obligations.
