Entry in the register of craftsmen with a university degree or technician degree

Description

The Register of Craftsmen is a register in which all

  • natural and
  • legal persons, and
  • partnerships with legal capacity

who operate a craft subject to licensing as a standing trade. The standing trade does not include itinerant trade and market traffic.

A complete list of crafts requiring approval can be found in Annex A to the Crafts Code (HwO). The craft does not have to be exercised as a whole, since the exercise of essential (partial) activities is also possible. Conversely, it is conceivable that several crafts or essential activities of several crafts are to be carried out. If several crafts subject to authorisation are practised, each of these crafts subject to authorisation must normally be entered in the register of craftsmen.

Furthermore, the management is entered in the register of craftsmen, which is responsible for the technical management of the craft enterprise and which has the necessary professional qualification for the exercise of the craft subject to licensing. Both the owners of craft businesses and salaried persons can be considered as plant managers. Proof of qualification can be provided by presenting a university degree certificate or a certificate of passing the technician examination. The training focus must correspond to the craft that is to be practiced.

  • Successful completion of a university degree or training as a state-certified technician.
  • The study or school focus of their examination must correspond to the craft subject to approval that is to be practiced.
