The Turin event was the official site-testing competition, or test event, for the 2006 Winter Olympics, which would be held in the same arena. It was the first European Championship to use the IJS which replaced the 6.0 system.

The compulsory dance was the Golden Waltz.

QualifyingEdit

The competition was open to skaters from European ISU member nations who had reached the age of 15 before 1 July 2004. The corresponding competition for non-European skaters was the 2005 Four Continents Championships. National associations selected their entries based on their own criteria. Based on the results of the 2004 European Championships, each country was allowed between one and three entries per discipline.
