Abstract/Citation: This agreement provides that as from the date on which the Treaty establishing the European Economic Area enters into force, the provisions of the Convention shall cease to apply to persons to whom Regulation (EEC) Nos. 1408/71 and 574/72 apply; rights in course of acquisition under the Convention immediately before the Treaty enters into force are to be determined in accordance with the provisions of the EEC Regulations. The Convention continues to apply to other persons who are insured under the social security schemes of Great Britain and Nothern Ireland and to persons who are insured under the social security schemes of the Isle of Man and the Island of Jersey. The Social Security (Iceland) Order 1992 makes provision for the modification of the Social Security Contributions and Benefits Act 1992 and the Social Security Administration Act 1992 so as to give effect to the agreement set out in the Schedule of the Order.
