The Board of Swedish Industry and Commerce for Better Regulation (NNR) was formed in 1982 and is a politically independent non-profit organisation wholly financed by its members, which include 20 Swedish business organisations and trade associations together representing just over 300,000 companies. This means that NNR speaks for all active companies in Sweden with one or more employees; companies in every industry and of every size.
NNR’s task is to advocate and work to achieve more effective and less costly regulations and a reduction in the extent to which companies are required to report information in Sweden and the EU.
NNR coordinates the business sector’s review of impact assessments of proposals for new or amended regulations as well as the business sector’s regulatory improvement work at national and EU level. This focused area of activity makes NNR unique among business organisations in Europe.
