The Energy Charter Secretariat has maintained the archives of the Energy Charter Process since its inception. In particular, the Secretariat keeps the documentary travaux préparatoires relating to the negotiation of the European Energy Charter, the Energy Charter Treaty, its related Protocols (1991-1994) and the Trade Amendment (1994-1998). In addition, the Secretariat has recordings of some of the meetings (1991-1994) of the negotiating groups (the audio travaux préparatoires).
A copy of the different draft versions of the Energy Charter Treaty (ECT) with an article-by-article analysis of the successive drafts of the ECT can be found here.
The travaux préparatoires (both audio and documentary) are accessible to the public under the policy approved by the Energy Charter Conference on 1 November 2016. They can be consulted in digital format at the Energy Charter Secretariat, subject to the following arrangements.
