Fewer inspections for firms with a good record

Companies with a solid record on health and safety issues will get fewer visits by government inspectors next year, the economic affairs ministry said on Monday.

The measure is one of several the government plans to introduce to reduce bureaucracy and red tape for business.
But companies operating in risky fields will not be exempt from inspections, the ministry said.
‘All these rules, even if made with the best of intentions, are threatening to help the Netherlands grid to a halt,’ economic affairs minister Maxime Verhagen said.
