The interim Marín Commission was appointed in March 1999 following the Resignation of the Santer Commission due to corruption charges against Édith Cresson. The Santer Commission had been due to retire in October 1999 and a successor had not yet been chosen by the European Council. Marín, a vice-president, was asked to assume the presidency.
The Marín Commission membership and Portfolios were the same as the previous Santer Commission, except that Marín replaced Santer as president.
