The series ‘The Impact of EU Regulatory Burden’ aims to provide examples of the adverse impact of poorly crafted legislation on Europe’s technology sectors and propose strategies for minimising  burdensome requirements and enhancing future legislative frameworks. These studies shed light on the excessive regulatory burdens arising from recent and forthcoming horizontal EU legislation. Specifically, they illustrate how current legislation fails to enhance policy outcomes, instead imposing significant burdens that undermine Europe’s appeal for investment, innovation, and progress in the twin green and digital transitions.
