High Level Group on Administrative Burdens advises the Commission on how to reduce administrative burden for businesses

The High Level Group on Administrative Burdens (also known as the "Stoiber Group") was set up as an independent body to advise the Commission on the implementation of its Action Programme for reducing administrative burdens, which aimed at reaching 25% less administrative burden at EU level. This goal was actually exceeded.

The Stoiber Group now advises the Commission to set a firm target for administrative-burden savings, the creation of an independent body of experts to reveiw impact assessments on the administrative costs of Commission legislative proposals, concentration of the Commission's work on the most important questions that have to be resolved at EU level and on the needs of small and medium-sized undertakings, as well as more rapid and better information on EU legislation.
