France

Article 287 of the Peace Treaty of Versailles (article 238 of the Treaty of St. Germain and article 221 of the Treaty of Trianon) states:
As soon as the present Treaty comes into force (i.e. 10 July 1920 for the Treaty of Versailles, 16 July 1920 for the Treaty of St. Germain and 26 July 1921 for the Treaty of Trianon), the High Contracting Parties shall, insofar as they are concerned, apply the Hague Convention relating to Civil Procedure of 17 July 1905.
Such revival however remains and shall remain without legal force for France, Portugal and Romania.
Compare, however, the Agreement between Hungary and Rumania of 16 April 1924 (Recueil des Traités, volume XLII page 165 ff.), the Declaration of Germany and Portugal of 21 July 1927 (Recueil des Traités, volume LXXV, page 375 ff.) and the Declaration of Germany and Rumania of 28 February 1929 (Recueil des Traités, volume XC, page 61 ff.).

This Convention is not applicable in relations between France and the acceding States not represented at the fourth Conference on Private International Law, in virtue of the reservation entered by France on signing the Hague Protocol of 4 July 1924.

Netherlands, the Kingdom of the

18-10-2010

The Kingdom of the Netherlands consisted of three parts: the Netherlands, the Netherlands Antilles and Aruba. The Netherlands Antilles consisted of the islands of Curaçao, Sint Maarten, Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba.
With effect from 10 October 2010, the Netherlands Antilles ceased to exist as a part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Since that date, the Kingdom consists of four parts: the Netherlands, Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten. Curaçao and Sint Maarten enjoy internal self-government within the Kingdom, as Aruba and, up to 10 October 2010, the Netherlands Antilles do.
These changes constitute a modification of the internal constitutional relations within the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The Kingdom of the Netherlands will accordingly remain the subject of international law with which agreements are concluded. The modification of the structure of the Kingdom will therefore not affect the validity of the international agreements ratified by the Kingdom for the Netherlands Antilles. These agreements, including any reservations made, will continue to apply to Curaçao and Sint Maarten.
The other islands that have formed part of the Netherlands Antilles - Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba - became part of the Netherlands, thus constituting 'the Caribbean part of the Netherlands'. The agreements that applied to the Netherlands Antilles will also continue to apply to these islands; however, the Government of the Netherlands will now be responsible for implementing these agreements.
