“Fit for Future” platform to look into Evaluation of unfair trading practices (UTP) in B2B relationships in the agricultural and food supply chain, QR codes on products and Organic production and labelling of organic products

Press notice 29/11/2023 [unofficial translation]: Administrative simplification, the common thread running through the 2023 recommendations and 2024 work programme of the “Fit for Future” platform. The “Fit for Future” platform, a group of high-level experts, is helping the Commission to simplify existing EU legislation. Yesterday, the Commission adopted its work programme for 2024, along with eight opinions aimed at cutting red tape and modernising EU legislation. These opinions aim to reduce the administrative burden in various areas, such as public procurement and the General Data Protection Regulation. They also contribute to the mid-term review of the Digital Europe programme and the European Standardisation Regulation. They are also guiding the Commission’s horizontal work to ensure a future-proof regulatory framework and the rigorous application of the SME test. In the 2024 annual work programme, the platform will pay particular attention to analysing the administrative burdens associated with reporting obligations. This work will feed into several Commission evaluations, notably on the European Social Fund+ (ESF+) and the European Regional Development Fund. It will also explore how to simplify EU legislation on organic production and the labelling of organic products, as well as the cross-cutting issue of QR codes on products. […] More information on the Commission’s Better Regulation agenda is available here.”
