The Kingdom of the Netherlands consisted of three parts: the Netherlands, the Netherlands Antilles and Aruba. The Dutch Antilles consisted of the islands of Curaçao, St. Maarten, Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba. With effect from October 10, 2010, the Netherlands Antilles stopped as are part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Since that day, the Kingdom consists of four parts: the Netherlands, Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten. Curaçao and Sint Maarten enjoy the Netherlands Antilles - within the Kingdom as well as Aruba - and until October 10, 2010 internal self-government.

It's a change in the internal constitutional structure of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The Kingdom of the Netherlands remains the subject of international law with the International Convention be completed. Changing the structure of the Kingdom has therefore no consequences for the validity of international conventions ratified by the Kingdom of the Netherlands Antilles. This agreement, including any made reservations, will continue to apply for Curaçao and Sint Maarten.

The remaining islands which were part of the Netherlands Antilles - Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba - became part of the Netherlands and make "the Caribbean part of the Netherlands" as such. The previously applicable in the Netherlands Antilles Convention also continues to apply for these islands; However, the Government of the Netherlands will now hold the responsibility for the implementation of this Convention.
