Welcome to the SCM Network

This site has been designed by the Standard Cost Model (SCM) Network - an exciting, collaborative, international group, working together to share experiences and knowledge about the application of the SCM. Through sharing this best practice their common goal is to reduce administrative burdens; cutting unnecessary bureaucracy and red tape.

The site is intended to be employed by countries using or considering using the SCM method, policy advisors working on better regulation, consultancy bureaus carrying out SCM measurements or business organisations interested in reducing administrative burdens.

The Secretariat would like to thank the Maltese Collegues
