EU Commission consults SMEs about Red Tape
SMEs often find the burden of bureaucracy and red tape overwhelming. The European commission is now carrying out a consultation to find out which are the most burdensome pieces of legislation to smaller companies. The online consultation is now open and will run until 21 December 2012.
Once the consultation is complete, the European Commission will analyse the results and consider how the situation can be improved for SMEs. Areas covered by the consultation include services, customs, employment and social affairs, energy, product safety, environment and taxation.
