On 7 March 2013, the European Commission published a Communication on “smart regulation”, which is based on comments received from about 1000 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and business organisations in a recent public consultation. The Commission has identified the top 10 most burdensome EU laws for SMEs, which includes the EU’s Modernised Customs Code. The Commission has announced that it will initiate follow up actions by June 2013 to respond to the SME concerns.
