Hufbeschlaglehrschmiedin/Hufbeschlaglehrschmied Recognition

Anyone who wants to work as a hoof shoesmith needs state recognition.

Examination certificates acquired outside Germany in the field of hoof and claw fittings can be treated in the same way in accordance with the Hufbeschlag-Anerkennungsverordnung (HufBeschl-AnerkennV). This ordinance also regulates the procedure of state recognition for persons with equivalent certificates.

Who should I contact?

Responsibility lies with the Lower Saxony State Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety (LAVES).

This procedure can also be handled through a "point of single contact". The "Point of Single Contact" is a special service offered by the municipalities and the state for service providers.
