It is necessary to define a common objective that is the primary task of the EGTC concerning the establishment. After that the tasks of the EGTC, its competences and the sphere of possible members shall be determined. The next step is to decide on the EGTC’s seat that defines the applicable law, so it is of utmost importance to take into consideration the member state’s EGTC Regulation. The procession of establishment proceeds with the preparation of the statutes and that of the draft agreement to which taking legal advice is highly recommended. Then the partners make a decision on the compulsory and potential bodies, and hold a statutory meeting. After that the submission of the requests for approval to the approval authorities of member states follows, that continues with the registration process in the seat’s member state. The last step of the EGTC’s establishment is that the registered grouping is announced by publishing it in the EU Official Journal.
