|Measure 4.4 Optimization of administrative procedures influencing legal business operations
|The optimization of the most common administrative procedure relevant for starting a business and for the conditions of operating within a sector.
The Action plan’s priority is the field of agriculture. In this sector, there is a problem with facilities working with food that operate without an approval, i.e. they are not registered in the registry of approved facilities managed by MAFWM, which is a pre-requisite for operating in the area of food production and placement. A similar problem is seen in the field of production and trade of alcoholic beverages and production of grapes and vine, with businesses not being included in relevant registries, which classifies them as non-registered entities. Namely, all of these entities can be considered operating in the shadow zone, without being aware of it, due to lack of knowledge about regulations and obligations to register in specific registries.
The solution for higher compliance and fair competition in this sector is seen in the optimization of procedures for registering or getting approval for those working with food, which would also enable efficient control through automated exchange of data among institutions.
Further on, there is a need to enable exchange of information about coffee producers between MAFWM and Tax Administration, in order to reduce possibility of illegal placement of products that do not comply with the product safety and excise goods requirements.
