Construction SMEs welcome better regulation but say no to deregulation

On paper, the better regulation initiative released by the Commission today contains a few positive provisions. Cutting red tape is essential to small businesses. Given their size, they have very few resources to cope with excessive burdens. Nevertheless, EBC strongly believes that simplification just cannot come at the expense of health and safety of workers and environmental concerns.


The April issue of the Construction Voice is online

In this issue: the vote on EFSI in the ECON and BUDG Committees; New logo and website for EBC; simplified procedures under the CPR; Construction 2020; Public Procurement.
