Until the adoption of the Treaty of Maastricht, there was a growing sense of the unity of a single integrated Community legal order, despite the existence of three different Communities. That unitary legal order was also uniformly applicable to all the Member States, except for some limited derogations provided by primary or secondary law, which exempted single countries from specific rules of Community law. The Court of Justice set great store on this uniform application.
