A key-point comparison & the new challenges for the existent Administrative Burden Models (A.B.M’s)

Nikos Alabanos, Sotiris Theodoropoulos


As administrative burden’s reduction (AB) is of crucial importance in order to ensure
competitive conditions for national economies, measurement standardization and objectivity
is a key component for the implementation of good regulation principles and administrative
cost reduction. International experience designates both the main challenges and the
limitations in which existent models are subjected to. Moreover, a thorough comparison
among the existent administrative burden models’ (ABM’s) stresses specific gaps mainly on
data and sampling measurement methods, while the widespread need for a common
comparison benchmark among different countries should be addressed.
