Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton TD has launched businessregulation.ie, a new website aimed at reducing the hardship of red tape on businesses. The website aims to bring together in one place, clear information on regulations imposed by over 30 Government bodies and how to comply with them.

The website was developed to address a clear need identified by businesses for a single source of information on regulatory requirements. By providing users with over 150 separate links to information, guidance and contact details, the portal reduces the need to trawl through multiple pages on different websites in search of information. The launch represents reforming and consolidating the five existing employment bodies into two streamlined bodies and delivering a 25% reduction in administrative burdens imposed on businesses.

Launching the website, Minister Bruton said: “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.”
