The “Once-Only” Principle (TOOP) Project launched in January 2017
The TOOP project is part of the EU eGovernment Action Plan 2016-2020 and will contribute towards increasing the efficiency of the Digital Single Market. The project will ensure that information is supplied to public administrations only once regardless of the company's country of origin. This step eliminates unnecessary burdens for European businesses which are asked to present the same data and documents repeatedly.
