As part of the Action Plans for Jobs 2012 (action point 1.49), Forfás has reviewed 159 licences for key sectors of the economy, including manufacturing, food and drink, retail, hospitality and leisure, waste management, road haulage and construction.
The key recommendation from the review is for the relevant licensing authorities to proceed towards the development of integrated licensing systems for retail, food and drink, hospitality and leisure and construction sectors to rationalise the number of licences and to streamline processes and therefore reduce the overall administrative burden on business.
