Differentiation between craft and non-craft: advice
Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)
Determining whether your company belongs to the Chamber of Skilled Crafts (HWK) or the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) is sometimes a complex issue. You can obtain advice on this from the HWK and/or IHK.
By law, those tradespeople who do not belong to the HWK belong to the IHK. In practice, however, many companies belong to both chambers because they carry out both non-craft and craft or craft-like activities. These so-called mixed businesses belong to the IHK or HWK with their respective part of the business.
Who should I contact?
To the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) or Chamber of Crafts (HWK) in whose chamber district your company is/will be based.
- Act on the Provisional Regulation of the Law of Chambers of Industry and Commerce (IHKG),
- Law on the organization of the skilled trades (Handwerksordnung-HwO),
- Trade Regulations (GewO).
What else should I know?
Further information can be found on the website of the IHK Schleswig-Holstein.
