 Directive 2007/63/EC

I. Description

A large part of EC legislation was introduced to correct market failures and ensure a level
playing field. These goals could often only be achieved by imposing obligations on businesses
to provide information and report on the application of the legislation.
With time, some of these procedures have become needlessly time-consuming or obsolete.
These unnecessary administrative burdens hamper economic activity and have a negative
impact on the competitiveness of European enterprises.
The Commission is committed to reducing these unnecessary burdens to the maximum extent
possible. This is a part of the Better Regulation strategy and it is of vital importance for
achieving our "Lisbon" targets of more growth and jobs.
