Published on to reduce the burden of red tape on business

Jobs Minister Richard Bruton today launched a new website aimed at reducing the burden of red tape on business. will bring together in one place clear information on regulations imposed by over 30 Government bodies.

The website was developed to address a clear need identified by business for a single source of information on regulatory requirements.

Today’s launch represents delivery ahead of schedule of a key Q3 commitment in Action Plan for Jobs 2012, and forms part of a range of measures aimed at reducing the burden of red tape on business, including reforming and consolidating the five existing employment rights bodies into two streamlined bodies, delivering a 25% reduction in administrative burdens imposed on business and enabling online compliance with regulations where possible.

Launching the new website today, Minister Bruton said:

A key part of our plan for jobs and growth is reducing costs, particularly by reducing where possible the burden that Government regulations impose on business. One problem identified by business was the lack of one single online source of information on regulations and how to comply with them, and so today we have launched so that businesses no longer have to search multiple Government websites to find out their obligations.

With today’s launch of, I am convinced that small businesses in particular will find compliance easier. Through the Action Plan for Jobs, we in Government will continue implementing changes to cut red tape, reduce costs, make it easier to start-up and expand a business and create the jobs we need.
