Federal Chancellor Merkel receives the annual report of the National Regulatory Control Council

Federal Chancellor Merkel receives the annual report of the National Regulatory Control Council in the Federal Chancellery: “As a society, we do need rules to a certain extent,” said Merkel. But without going so far as to harm acceptance of the state, she added. This was why a careful approach had to be adopted, she stressed.
The role of the National Regulatory Control Council is to support the Federal Government in implementing its measures in the areas of bureaucracy reduction and improved legislation. The independently operating National Regulatory Control Council (NKR) always has ten members over a five-year period and prepares annual reports for the Federal Chancellor, with recommendations on matters such as cutting red tape and improving legislation.
