Organisation of a weekly market Determination

If a weekly market is organized, the so-called determination of the responsible authority is necessary, provided that the so-called market privileges (e.B exemption from restrictions on the right to open shops, exemption from the provisions of the Trade Code on the standing and travel trade, relaxation of the working time regulations, especially on Sundays and public holidays and certain restrictions of the youth employment protection law) are sought.

A determination entitles the holder to carry out the respective event. In the case of the fixing of a weekly market, the fixing obliges the organising person to carry it out.

The determination regulates the subject matter, place, time and opening hours of the events concerned.

Information about the possibility of fixing several events at the same time or one event on a permanent basis is provided by the competent authority.

Further information on the topic of "events" can be found in the following services:

  • Organisation of an annual or special market
  • Organisation of a trade fair, exhibition or wholesale market
