Every entrepreneur needs to be aware of the legal obligations and rules in order to build a successful business. All EU countries must respect EU law although they can also have their own rules. Find websites and platforms that gather together and summarise all the regulations, directives and decisions you need to know when starting up.

Use the ‘country’ filter below to refine your search and view country-specific information only.

If you are unable to find country- or sector-specific information, try using other search criteria.

To help with this, we have added tags which enable you to search for specific information throughout the platform, so that you can view all the relevant information on one topic without having to browse through all the sections and sub-sections.

As some information is relevant to both women and men, please keep in mind that some results will target women in particular, while others will be relevant to entrepreneurs in general.
