COMMISSION DETAILS PLANS TO CUT RED TAPE [10 January 2014]
The European Commission has detailed its plans to streamline its legislation. One of the main aims is to cut red tape, especially for small and medium-sized businesses. On 2 October 2013, the Commission issued a Communication on Regulatory Fitness and Performance (REFIT), which spelled out areas where it felt it could reduce the regulatory burden. The current focus is on reviewing legislation covering consultation of workers and occupational health and safety legislation.
