  • Eliminate unnecessary administrative procedures;
  • Eliminate steps of the administrative procedure that are no longer required;
  • Develop guides and guidelines to clarify and better understand a legal regime;
  • Eliminate requests for information not necessary for the instruction of the procedure;
  • Eliminate requests for opinions from external public entities, when not justified;
  • Eliminate the obligation of interested parties to provide information that the Public Administration already holds, allowing access to other public databases, with respect for the protection of personal data;
  • Perform the procedure within a certain period, with automatic issuance of documents enabling the interested party to develop the intended behaviour, in case of non-compliance with deadlines;
  • Eliminate or reduce intermediate deadlines.
