Construction of chimneys and furnaces (industrial and others)

The page is under construction

If the activity is carried out as a craft, it is necessary to obtain a crafts licence and register in the Crafts Register at the Chamber of Craft and Small Business of Slovenia (OZS).

For construction of and carrying out of works on:

  •   complex structures  the contractor must designate a responsible works manager for complex structures;
  •  non-complex, simple and less complex structures the contractor must designate a responsible works manager for non-complex, simple and less complex structures.

Providers only performing individual jobs in construction must appoint a responsible manager of individual works for those works they are qualified for.

Applies for SKD:

  • Other specialised construction activities n.e.c. F43.990

Conditions

  • The right to pursue a craft activity for which suitable vocational qualifications are necessary, is obtained based on the craft business permit and entrance in the Craft Register at the Chamber of Craft and Small Business of Slovenia.

    Craft business permit is proof of fulfillment of the conditions for performing an activity.

    Details

  • Liability insurance for damages must include liability for damages that could be incurred by the investor or a third party in connection with the carrying out of their activities and must cover damage resulting from negligence, error or omission of the duties of the contractor and their employees, with the amount of the annual insurance premium not less than 50.000 EUR.

    If the contractor has taken out liability insurance for damages abroad, the insurance must cover the damage incurred in the Republic of Slovenia.

    Evidence

Cross-border/temporary provisions of activity

The provider that is established and meets the conditions for the performance of craft activities in the EU Member States, EEA or the Swiss Confederation, may occasionally carry out commercial activity without establishment in the Republic of Slovenia.

For craft activities, which may present a serious risk to public health or safety, the provider must apply for an authorization to periodically perform a craft activity at the Craft and Small Business of Slovenia.

The Chamber of Craft and Small Business of Slovenia enters providers in the craft register for a period of one year from the date of the submission of the application. Before the expiry of one year, the provider must extend the temporary craft permit.
