Craft role - registration of its own motion

If you are engaged in a trade subject to authorisation, you are obliged to register in the craft role. If you do not comply with this obligation, the Chamber of Crafts (HWK) is entitled to register your company of its own motion. In doing so, the HWK relies on data on business registrations, which are transmitted to it by the Trade Office.

The HWK shall give you the opportunity to comment before registering of its own motion. If you do not believe that you do not have to operate a trade subject to authorisation, it is important that you make your views known within the time limit set for you. After the expiry of the period, an objection may be considered.

If the conditions for entry in the trades reel are not met, the HWK is obliged to delete the registration and, if necessary, to enter your trade in the appropriate list (registration-free crafts, craft-like trades).
