The European Charter for Small Enterprises supports small enterprises, in particular by improving their legislative and administrative framework. During its six years of existence, the Charter has become a core document of SME policy. It is now the reference frame for 44 countries and it is also used at regional policy-making level. The Commission has produced an electronic catalogue and brochure containing 40 examples of good practice to promote entrepreneurship, whittled down from the 155 submitted by Member States, Norway, Bulgaria and Romania.
