Regulated skilled crafts

German: Zulassungspflichtige Handwerke

The Trade and Crafts Code (HwO) determines which crafts are subject to authorisation and which are not. If you want to set up your own business in a skilled craft sector requiring approval, you often need a title of master craftsman or other proof of qualification. You can find out in the Trade and Crafts Code which professions belong to those requiring approval.
