JBCE submitted its opinion on the Commission's initiative regarding Administrative burden – rationalisation of reporting requirements


On 28th November, JBCE CS committee, in collaboration with all other committees, submitted feedback on the Commission's initiative addressing the rationalisation of reporting requirements and administrative burden:

JBCE welcomes the opportunity to contribute to this initiative aimed at reducing administrative burdens by 25% in the face of ever-increasing regulatory compliance.

JBCE would like to endorse the European Commission’s idea of streamlining, digitising, and optimising reporting requirements for companies through this call for evidence.

While reporting information which are vital to achieve policy objectives such as product safety and circular economy should not be neglected, JBCE would like to highlight the following points which are likely to cause excessive administrative burden;

  • Ambiguous definitions and standards
  • Regulatory fragmentation among Member States
  • Excessive scope of reporting contents
  • Duplication of reporting requirements

In addition, we would like to request clarification on the process and criteria used to evaluate these feedbacks and the results of this initiative.
