  The European Economic Area (EEA) - Overview
(EEA Agreement) was negotiated between the Community, the then Member States, and seven member countries of the EFTA and was signed in May 1992.
The EEA was maintained because of the wish of the three remaining countries - Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein - to participate in the Internal Market, while not assuming the full responsibilities of EU membership.
All new Community legislation in areas covered by the EEA is integrated into the Agreement through an EEA Joint Committee decision and subsequently becomes part of the national legislation of the EEA EFTA States.

 Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2006
An EEA national is now eligible to apply for a “registration certificate”, and their third country family member is now to be issued with a “residence card”.
Another example of giving effect to a judicial decision, is the inclusion of a specific right of residence for the third country family member of a UK national, who has been residing in another Member state with them before returning here.
There is an initial right of residence for 3 months on entry to the UK, but this is not conditional on exercise of what used to be known as a “Treaty right”, only that the Community national or their family member does not become an unreasonable burden on the social assistance system.

 European Community - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The 'Economic' was removed from its name by the Maastricht treaty in 1992, which at the same time effectively made the European Community the first of three pillars of the European Union, called the Community (or Communities) Pillar.
European Communities was the name given collectively to the European Economic Community (EEC), the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom) and the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC), when in 1967, they were first merged under a single institutional framework with the Merger Treaty.
The European Economic Community (EEC) was an organization established by the Treaty of Rome (25 March 1957) between the ECSC countries Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and West Germany, known informally as the Common Market (the Six).

 Andrea Willi - "Liechtenstein in the Process of European Integration and Cooperation"
The Agreement on the European Economic Area is the outcome of long and intensive negotiations between the EFTA States and the European Community.
The objectives of the EEA Agreement lie primarily in the field of economic and social policy: the main purpose of the European Economic Area is to create relationships between the contracting parties similar to those within the internal market of the European Union.
Two challenges of high political importance are to be dealt with: first the enlargement of the European Union and its impact on the European Economic Area and, second, the Treaty of Amsterdam which provides for institutional reforms within the EU that are likely to have a bearing on the EEA.

The European Economic Area ("the EEA") is the free trade area comprised of the member states of the European Union ("the EU") together with three of the four states remaining in the European Free Trade Area ("EFTA").
The European Free Trade Area was originally set up to form a rival bloc to the six member states which formed the European Community (as it was then known).
The EFTA states soon found that in order to participate in the single market they have to abide by rules established by the EU while they are disadvantaged because they play no part in the process of determining the rules.

 Opinion pursuant to the second subparagraph of Article 228 (1) of the EEC Treaty. [1992] EUECJ C-1/92 (10 April 1992)
Article 111(3) of the Agreement creating the European Economic Area confers on the Court of Justice, in the event of disputes relating to the interpretation of provisions of the agreement that are substantively identical to the corresponding rules of Community law, jurisdiction to interpret the relevant rules.
Consequently, the jurisdiction conferred on the Court by that provision for the purposes of interpreting the provisions of the agreement at the request of the Contracting Parties is compatible with the EEC Treaty.
Under Article 107 of the Agreement creating the European Economic Area, States belonging to the European Free Trade Association may authorize their courts to request the Court of Justice to decide on the interpretation of a provision of the agreement.
