THE CHALLENGE

The Government of the Republic of Croatia conducts a comprehensive regulatory reform aimed at: 1. Improving the business climate in Croatia through the administrative relief of the business sector and removing barriers to market competition; 2. Ensuring efficient and transparent implementation of administrative relief measures.

02

THE SOLUTION

Apsolon’s regulatory reform experts provided advisory support to the Ministry of the Economy, Entrepreneurship and Crafts by identifying regulatory and administrative obligations under the authority of state bodies and calculated the size of administrative burden using the Apsolon method, applying standard methodological parameters of time, frequency, population size and financial cost according to each regulation and regulatory area. During 4 years, through 3 projects, in cooperation with state administration bodies and the business community, measures were taken to remove/reduce the identified administrative burden and have been integrated into the Administrative Action Plans of the Government of the Republic of Croatia for Administrative Deployment. Apsolon has designed and implemented ApsolonM Software – a comprehensive IT solution to support the process of identification, measurement, and reduction of administrative burden and as a central place for establishing a dialogue between the legislator, the business sector and the interested public, which also functions as a sort of administrative burden/reload traffic light.
