Languages of publication
The article deals with the international and national legal framework, based on the Agreement on the International Energy Programme of 1974. It points out historical consequences of this Agreement and of the establishment of the International Energy Agency. It deals with the different aspects of this special international organisation: with its membership, governance and its relation to other international organisations, namely to the European Union. Further, a special attention is paid to the way, how the framework created by the Agreement of 1974 was transformed into the national legal framework of the Slovak Republic. The fourth part of this paper contains overview of the measures, laid down in the Agreement in order to cope with the danger of oil shortages. The author classifies these measures (emergerncy stocks, emergency measures, oil sharing system) according to the traditional theories of the administrative law and points out, that while some very important decision competencies have been transfered to the International Energy Agency by the Agreement, most of the administrative measures, including the state control and administrative sanctions must be executed by the national administrative authorities.
