Chambers Ireland Seeks Views on Burdensome EU Legislation

Shannon Chamber, in conjunction with Chambers Ireland, invites members of the Chamber network to present their views on pieces of legislation that are burdensome for SMEs.


Through participating in a project known as ‘Burden Tracker’ with Eurochambres, Chambers Ireland is seeking to alert policy makers to the negative impact some pieces piece of legislation have on business.


As part of this process, Chambers Ireland aims to identify 3-4 pieces of EU legislation that are problematic for companies (e.g. legal uncertainty, excessive bureaucracy, unnecessary regulatory burden, etc) and campaign for an evaluation of the EU legislation at national and European level.


Examples of legislation that can prove unnecessarily burdensome on SMEs include the Late Payment Directive, the Package Travel Directive, REACH etc.
