The Montserrat government says it is seeking accession to the Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas that governs the 15-member regional integration grouping, CARICOM.

Montserrat is the only non-independent member of CARICOM, which it help to established.

It continues to retain full membership of CARICOM and remains an up to date subscriber to all of the specialised agencies and the CARICOM Secretariat.

Trade Minister Claude Hogan says in July 2014, Montserrat had advised CARICOM that the country would have progressed with the ratification of the revised treaty and then proceed to accession. 

He said Montserrat would also proceed to engage with the Caribbean Court of Justice and the Caribbean Development Fund to ensure the concurrent accession to these entities.
