Renoveited Action Programme for Reducing Administrative Burdens
focuses on so-called ‘curative’ measures; nevertheless, prevention is also very important. In the process of adopting regulations, it is necessary to conduct the impact assessments, find the best solutions, and communicate with the public and key stakeholders. This is the only way for regulations to be adopted, efficient and implemented in practice.
It needs to be specifically emphasised that the renewed programme for eliminating administrative barriers is aimed at unburdening the economy and citizens. It may also have a significant impact on reducing the costs of public administration, as unnecessary burdens are often aimed at the public sector. Costs are related to additional staff employment, primarily due to excessive and ill-conceived regulations. In future, special attention should be paid to the field of internal (administrative) unburdening.
