Service Description

The Chamber of Skilled Crafts issues exemptions for persons in its district who wish to practise a skilled trade or a significant part of a skilled trade independently before a master craftsman's examination or equivalent examinations have been completed or because it is unreasonable to expect them to take the master craftsman's examination.

The applicant must explain the reason for the exemption and be able to demonstrate master-like knowledge and skills in both the technical and commercial fields.

The exemption permit may be granted subject to conditions or requirements or for a limited period of time and may be restricted to a significant part of the activities belonging to a trade listed in Annex A. Exemption permits are personal.

What are the fees?
