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.

Conditions

  • The holder of the craft activity is a person with adequate professional qualifications.

    Adequate formal qualifications or adequate work experience are considered adequate professional qualifications.

    The holder of the craft activity may also be a person employed by the applicant for the craft business permit and who fulfils the requirement of having adequate professional qualifications.

    If the holder of the craft activity leaves the holder of the craft business permit temporarily or permanently, the holder is obliged to replace them within six months. During the craftsman’s absence, the holder of the craft business permit must cease carrying out craft activities.

    If the holder of the craft business permit fails to replace the craftsman within the set time limit, the Chamber of Craft and Small Business of Slovenia (OZS) withdraws their licence and removes them from the Crafts Register.

    The Chamber of Craft and Small Business of Slovenia (OZS)  allows the holder of the craft business permit to suspend their activities for a period of one year, provided the craftsman is absent for more than six months for a justified reason (military duty, sickness).

    Inventors have the right, on the basis of patents granted, to carry out craft activities that require adequate professional qualifications, even without obtaining a master craftsman title, if their patents refer to the type of activities they intend to carry out.

    The same right is granted to the holder of the sample or model.

    Details

  • Applicants who wish to pursue this activity must register the business activity, and have the appropriate legal status.

  • The holder of the craft activity is a person with relevant vocational qualifications. Relevant vocation qualifications include suitable education or sufficient work experience.

    The holder of the craft activity may also be a person who is an employee of the proposer for obtaining craft business permit and meets the condition of suitable vocational qualifications.

    If the holder of the craft activity temporarily or permanently leaves the holder of the craft business permit, he/she must be replaced within a period of six months. During the absence of the holder of the craft activity the holder of the craft business permit must terminate his operations.

    In the event that the holder of the craft business permit does not replace the holder of the craft activity in due time, his permit is withdrawn by the Chamber of Craft and Small Business of Slovenia (OZS) and he/she is deleted from the Craft Register.

    OZS allows the holder of the craft permit to temporarily suspend his activities for the period of one year if the holder of the activity is absent for more than six months for a valid reason (military duty, illness).

    Based on the granted patents, the inventor has the right to pursue the craft activity requiring suitable vocational qualifications even without obtaining master title if the patents are related to the type of activity they intend to perform.

    The same right also applies to a sample or a model holder.
