Celebrating 30 Years of the EU Single Market (Jan 1, 1993)

With the onset of 1993 the single market of the European Community (EC) was finally launched.

Four new fundamental freedoms became a reality for all EC member states: free movement of goods, persons, services and capital. All citizens were now free to travel, live, work, study, do business or invest money anywhere in the EC. This meant better training and employment opportunities as well as a wider choice of products and services. By giving EC-based companies a home market of almost 450 million people in total, the single market promoted trade and competition. The most obvious aspect of the new regulations was the abolition of goods controls at the internal borders, so that a large part of the German customs offices at the western borders ceased operation at the end of 1992.

Since the enlargement of the European Union in 2009, the European single market has become the largest single market in the world. 25 per cent of the EU's gross domestic product is generated within its framework, with more than 12 trillion Euros of economic output turned over at last count.

The idea of creating a single European market had already been included in the founding treaty of the European Economic Community at the end of the 1950s. As early as 1968, customs duties were no longer levied within the EC, at the same time common tariffs were applied to imports from third countries. The "White Paper on Completing the Single Market"—a checklist of legislative measures necessary for its realisation-- was presented in 1985. Over the next few years, almost 300 legal acts were ratified and, if necessary, transposed into national law.

The 1987 "Single European Act" finally formed the basis for the completion of the European internal market; it also set December 31, 1992 as a target date for the realisation of fundamental freedoms.
