Results by sector
In recent years, the government has taken a series of measures to reduce the regulatory burden on professionals. A summary is presented below.
Reporting missing travel documents
- Residents of Amsterdam will in future report missing passports to the municipality, not to the police. If this measure were introduced nationally, it would save 90,000 hours a week in police time.
- Fine tracking system
In North Holland people can track fines imposed on them digitally. This will save the police 15 minutes for every question asked about fines.
- Simplification of the form for not stopping after an accident
A pilot scheme has been held in Zeeland. Per accident, it saves 10-15 minutes of police time.
- Police mediation skills course to deal with complaints
Mediation skills can help prevent time-consuming procedures when the public complain about the police. Sixty officers have already taken the course and are putting what they have learned into practice.
- Risk-based supervision
The Education Inspectorate will focus on ‘high-risk schools’. Schools that are up to standard will be visited less frequently. This will save time for the Inspectorate and the schools.
- Online absentee registration system
The online absentee registration system is a simple national system to report school absenteeism.
Care and youth care sector
- Care standards
A care standard is a description of the minimum care package for chronic illnesses such as diabetes. It enables general practitioners to draw up a care plan faster. Two care standards have already been introduced.
- Care providers carry out their own needs re-assessments
Since 2010, all care providers have been able to carry out needs re-assessments for certain client groups. In the past, only the Care Needs Assessment Centre (CIZ) could do so.
- Cobos information system
This information system provides participating youth care institutions with fast, relevant and up-to-date client information. Decisions on the most effective approach can now be taken more quickly.
- Privacy Guide
This internet application clarifies what information youth care providers can share. This will prevent unnecessary caution when cooperation is essential.
- Simplification of youth care needs assessment
The care a young person needs no longer has to be laid down in an official decision.
- Improved application form for exceptional medical expenses assessment for young people
Rotterdam Youth Care Office has piloted a new form that is clearer and contains fewer questions. It can serve as an example to other Youth Care Offices.
Social security sector
- Digital Customer File (DKD)
The recently introduced Digital Customer File will be extended. It simplifies the collection of data for income advisers. Customers do not need to provide the same information twice.
- Standard letters and standard reports
A pilot scheme in Amersfoort using standard letters and standard reports has saved income advisers a lot of time.
