Article 224 is one of the most powerful Articles of the Treaty of Rome, allowing a member state to take unilateral measures and to suspend some or all its Treaty-based obligations in times of what can loosely be described as serious internal turmoil or external threat. It is for this reason that the very next Article of the Treaty, Article 225, allows the Commission or a member state of challenge the invocation of Art.224, before the European Court of Justice (ECJ), on grounds of improper use. In practice, the use of Art.224 by a member state presents multiple problems.
