Assign single point of contact

As a service provider from an EU member state or an EEA state, you can either handle all formalities related to the commencement and performance of the activity directly with the competent authorities, or you can contact the Single Point of Contact.

The service is also available if you wish to have your professional qualification for a regulated profession from another EU state recognized.

The Single Point of Contact is a kind of intermediary between you and the Competent Authority (or the different Competent Authorities) and helps to handle all the procedures and formalities, for example, applications, authorizations, registrations, which are necessary for both starting and performing the service.

Tip: Domestic applicants - that is, German nationals who wish to provide a service in Germany - can also contact the Single Point of Contact.

Tasks of the Single Point of Contact

  • Provision of information and information for service providers, for example, on the documents and deadlines required for approval
  • Provision of necessary forms and documents
  • Receipt of applications and documents and their forwarding to the competent authority
  • Receipt of the decisions and other responses of the authority
  • Forwarding of official letters to the applicants

Advantages of the EA process

If you handle the procedure via the Single Point of Contact, you have the advantage of having a clear overview of all the necessary steps you need to complete and receive support in the ongoing procedure. This means that you only need to contact one office. The Single Point of Contact will organize all further necessary procedural steps for you. However, the Single Point of Contact cannot make any substantive decisions itself, but only acts as a central procedural intermediary. His or her activity is roughly comparable to that of a broker.Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

Note: Appeal procedures that may follow the approval procedure (for example, filing complaints or lawsuits against decisions of the authority) cannot be handled through the Single Point of Contact.
