Craft role: illicit crafting - prohibition of business

The holder of a craft enterprise or a craft-like enterprise is required to register in the craft roll or the list of non-licensed crafts and craft-like trades with the Chamber of Crafts (HWK) and for the notification of certain company data. This is regulated by the Crafts Code (HwO).

In principle, registration in the craft roll or in the directories must be waited before the operation of the trade subject to authorisation can begin. If the independent operation of a craft subject to authorisation is carried out contrary to the rules, the continuation of the business may be carried out after consultation with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IHK) and the Chamber of Crafts by the competent authority (usually the order office).
