Single European Act
The SEA was the first major revision of the 1957 Treaty od Rome. The act set the European Community an objective of establishing a single market by December of 1992, and codified European Political Cooperation, the forerunner of the European Union’s Common Foreign and Security Policy. It was signed in Luxembourg on February 1986, but it came into effect a year later, under the Delors Commission.
The Maastricht Treaty
The treaty undertaken to integrate Europe was signed on February 1992 by the members of the EC in the city of Maastricht. On December 1991, the same city hosted the European Council which drafted the Treaty. Upon its entry into force on 1 November 1993 during the Delors Commission, it created the EU and led the creation of the single European currency, the Euro.
