(The original treaty was signed in July 2011 but has been amended since then.) This treaty is separate from the Fiscal Treaty. The ESM treaty does refer to the Fiscal Stability Treaty and provides that assistance from the ESM from 1 March 2013 will be dependent on the country concerned having ratified the Fiscal Stability Treaty.
The ESM treaty must now be ratified by the 17 euro area states. This is expected to be done by July 2012. The ESM treaty will come into force when member states representing 90% of the capital commitments have ratified it.
Ireland will ratify the ESM treaty by means of legislation
