Single European Act

The SEA, which entered into force in July 1987, provided the legal and procedural support for achievement of the single European Market by 1992. The SEA revised the European Economic Community (EEC) Treaty and, where not already provided for in the Treaty, majority decisions were introduced for numerous votes facing the Council of Ministers, particularly those affecting establishment of the single European Market and the European financial common market. The role of the European Parliament was strengthened; decisions on fiscal matters remained subject to unanimity.
