Man­u­fac­tur­ing start made eas­ier

Kathimerini English - - Focus - DIM­I­TRA MANIFAVA

En­trepreneurs across 897 man­u­fac­tur­ing ac­tiv­i­ties will soon be able to start a new business by sub­mit­ting a sim­ple form to their re­gional au­thor­ity, sav­ing time and money both for them­selves and the pub­lic ad­min­is­tra­tion, De­vel­op­ment Min­is­ter Con­stanti­nos Skrekas said yes­ter­day.

The new law, and the rel­e­vant min­is­te­rial de­cree signed by Skrekas re­gard­ing its ap­pli­ca­tion, abol­ishes the need for an op­er­a­tion per­mit for new man­u­fac­tur­ing en­ter­prises in Greece across a wide ar­ray of sec­tors, rang­ing from the pro­cess­ing and stor­age of pota­toes to the pro­duc­tion of al­co­holic drinks and the assem­bly of ve­hi­cles.

Busi­ness­men will need to main­tain their own file of doc­u­ments such as the con­struc­tion per­mit, fire safety cer­ti­fi­ca­tion etc, which will need to be pro­duced in case of an in­spec­tion by the au­thor­i­ties.

The min­istry hopes that en­trepreneurs will be spared at least two to three months with the new sys­tem, as well as be­tween 60 and 1,500 euros which they have to pay to au­thor­i­ties in stamps etc, in or­der to have their op­er­a­tion li­censed is­sued un­der the cur­rent pro­ce­dures.
