Consequently, the Accession Treaty assumes that in the normal course of events, Community law on free movement of workers should apply for the EU-25 Member States from 1 May 2009 onwards.
Nevertheless, the Accession Treaty allows an EU-15 Member State to continue with restrictions in case of serious disturbances (or a threat thereof) of its labour market, in which case restrictions can be applied for the final phase, which is the last two years of the transitional period (from 1 May 2009 to 30 April 2011).
As for the Member States that joined the EU on 1 May 2004, the 2003 Accession Treaty makes a distinction between their relations with the EU-15 Member States on the one hand, and their relations with other Member States that joined the EU on the other.
