Individuals wishing to register a sole proprietorship or a private limited company must provide the code of the activity they would like to practise upon registration. The activity codes are derived from the Standard Classification of Activities – SKD 2008. The type of activity then determines whether the individual needs to prove their qualifications and obtain a craft licence or whether they do not need a craft licence at all and do not need to prove their qualifications.
For performing so-called craft activities – these are activities listed in the Decree of Craft Activities (Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia, No 63/13), it is necessary to obtain a craft permit. The craft permit is issued by the Chamber of Craft and Small Business in the region where the company has its registered office, provided that the qualification requirement is met. What qualifications are required for obtaining a craft permit can be found in the document: ·List of relevant secondary educational programmes and National Vocational Qualifications to perform specific craft activities. The document can be found on the website of the Chamber of Craft and Small Business – List of relevant secondary educational programmes and National Vocational Qualifications to perform specific craft activities
The qualification requirement for obtaining a craft permit is different for each activity, but the appropriate professional education or Master’s exam in the required field is a condition.
Activities in which individual National Professional Qualifications can also fulfil the requirement for demonstrating adequate professional competence (instead of appropriate education) include the following:
10.710 – Production of bread, fresh pastries, and confectionery – NVQ traditional maker of bread, pastries, and pasta
