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.

TOOP has the ultimate goal of promoting cross-border cooperation among authorities and offering control and transparency opportunities regarding business operations across borders.

TOOP has a budget of 8 million Euros, funded by the Horizon 2020 programme from the European Union. The consortium is composed of participants from 21 countries (AT, BE, BG, DE, DK, EE, FI, GR, IT, LT, LU, LV, NL, NO, PL, PT, RO, SE, SI, SK, TR).

The kick-off event takes place on 25-27 January 2017.
