> The Single European Act
from minor modifications, this Treaty was the first profound and wide-ranging
constitutional reform of the EU since the 1950s. The SEA introduced measures
aimed at achieving an internal market (for instance, harmonisation) plus
institutional changes related to these (such as a generalisation of qualified
majority voting and a cooperation procedure involving the European Parliament).
It also provided legal form for European Political Cooperation (EPC).
The SEA was signed in February 1986 and came into force on 1 July 1987.
