More streamlined legislation

More streamlined legislation means a regulatory environment that works better for enterprises, citizens and public authorities alike. It can be achieved by making legislation more understandable, clear and predictable. Moreover, legislation should not add to the costs for or administrative burden on enterprises and citizens.

Regulatory burden means costs imposed on enterprises, consumers, public authorities and others through legislation and compliance with regulatory obligations. Different kinds of statutory obligations to report and provide information or the need to invest in brand new machinery or equipment are examples of regulatory burden.

Bill drafting that strives not to introduce obligations that would add on the regulatory burden may contribute to boosting productivity and competitiveness.
