French proposals to simplify EU law

At the 24 October meeting of the European Council, the French president F. Hollande put forward a project to simplify EU law based on three pillars : "delete all obsolete directives ", " limit supporting documentation required " and " adapt the law to the end-users ."
This reform drive views itself as the natural complement to the national effort (labelled "simplification shock" and reported in previous posts) which has already generated 200 measures, with more to come in coming weeks aimed at citizens and business, and new measures to facilitate judicial redress.
The economic impact of the programme, which should not be mistaken for deregulation, is still being assessed. The extension from 10 to 15 years of the validity of the ID card will for example generate a 25% reduction of administrative costs. A new integrated planning procedure to accelerate the construction of 20,000 has a potential revenue for the construction sector of € 3 billion ," says the Elysee.
