SCM ex-ante measurements – preventing administrative burdens in new regulation
Which proposals: Proposals with substantial administrative consequences
How: Broadly carried out as a “normal” SCM measurement (three phases) – the main difference is that the results are expected and not real administrative burdens.
Who: The actual measurement is carried out by a consultancy firm (the interviews etc.) in close cooperation with the Ministry and DCCA.
Timetable: The measurement has to be completed within 20-25 working days.
Committee on Economic Affairs: The results and recommendations from the measurement and analysis of proposals with substantial new administrative burdens are send to the Governments Committee on Economic Affairs.
Decision: The Committee on Economic Affairs has to decide whether the Ministry should reduce the administrative burdens in the proposal before the proposal can be approved.
Ex-post measurement: The ex-ante measurement will always be ex-post measured in order to ensure that the expected administrative burdens do not differ from the actual administrative burdens
