The 2006 St Andrews agreement was published jointly at St Andrews on 13 October 2006 by the British and Irish Governments. The practical changes to the 1998 Belfast agreement institutions as envisaged by the 2006 St Andrews agreement have been formalised by the intergovernmental agreement between the Irish Government and the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (Cm 7078), which came into force on 9 May 2007 following the restoration of devolution.
