Online consultation on administrative burdens reduction

The European Commission has launched a major Action Programme for reducing administrative burdens (2007-2012). This programme focuses on the information that EU businesses are obliged to provide to public authorities or private parties: information required for legal registration, certification, inspection, subsidy; filing statistical forms; energy labels for consumers or reports to stockholders; etc.

 

The consultation invites entrepreneurs to identify unnecessary red tape in order to help the EU improve the quality of its legislation. The consultation is part of the Action Programme to reduce admin burdens on businesses in the EU by 25% in 2012.

If you feel that you are obliged to provide unnecessary information or that the required information could be provided in a more efficient way, please use this form to submit your suggestions. If you have problems with several pieces of legislation, use preferably a separate form for each piece of legislation.

The consultation is very short and contains targeted questions. Each suggestion will be examined by the Commission and every three months the Commission will prepare a summary of these suggestions and an overall feedback on the same site.
