2024 Commission work programme

The work programme puts a strong focus on simplifying rules for citizens and businesses across the European Union.


Today, the Commission adopted its 2024 work programme.This follows up on President von der Leyen’s commitment to reduce reporting requirements by 25%, in line with our strategy to boost the EU’s long-term competitiveness and to provide relief for SMEs. Examples of the simplification proposals include the postponing deadlines for sector-specific standards set out in the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive, as well as changes to the scope of application of the Accounting Directive and the Benchmark Regulation
