Anyone taking up or terminating independent operations of a craft not requiring approval must immediately inform the Chamber of Crafts that is responsible for the district in which the premises are located. The names of legal representatives of legal entities and of authorised partners of private companies must also be registered.
A trade is a craft not requiring approval pursuant to the Crafts Code, if it is operated on a craft-oriented basis and listed in attachment B, section 1 of the Crafts Code.
After the Chamber of Crafts has been informed of the craft business not requiring approval, a confirmation of registration in the directory of crafts not requiring approval and craft-like trades will be issued.
Unlike registration of a trade in the Register of Craftsmen for a craft that requires registration and approval, no proof of qualification or title of master craftsman is required for the registration in the “Directory of operators of business in the areas of crafts not requiring approval and craft-like trades”.
Registration in the Directory of Crafts Not Requiring Approval can be applied for with the Chamber of Crafts that is responsible for the principal place of business. If this address is not yet known, registration can also be applied for with the Chamber of Crafts that is responsible for the applicant’s place of residence.
