Collection of rules and regulations

Country: 
Worldwide
Summary: 

Doing business requires a complex capacity and activity to comply with standards of production and processing but also to fulfil all administrative, tax and social security obligations. In agricultural there are even more special burdens in relation CAP payment schemes and to the special nature of the agricultural production.
Nowadays regulations are very complex, sophisticated and difficult and in many cases tailored for large enterprises. It ultimately means that a smaller operation does have difficulty as to comply with all regulations.
Further there are many marginal activities, either because of the nature of the activity (mostly those based on traditional activities or handicraft) or because of its small volume which would need special regulations. The complete collection of rules and regulations of specific areas or activities within agriculture together with an easy-to-read and –understand guide enables farmers to comply easier
Guidelines and repository of good practices should be prepared by European Union and Member State accordingly (published through EIP AGRI and ENRD network) which support Member State legislation and implementation in the government administration and authorities.
Even an EU level working group for the integrated management of the legislation and the preparation of guidelines for the marginal, handcraft and diversified small scale production as well as their professional representation within the European Union Council or in its background institution
