SKH Architects can help you apply for all required permits in order to open a business in Spain.
An activity license (sometimes called ‘licencia ambiental’) gives you permission to offer your services via a physical location – a business premises. This could be a factory, office, restaurant or shop, for example. The project which you require from a professional will justify that the premises comply with regulations regarding all of the mechanical and electrical services so that you can officially carry out your commercial activity in that space without any risk to the public.
Activities are classified into categories according to the degree of impact they are likely to have on the environment: the project for an activity classified as ‘inocua’ would be far simpler than the project for an activity classified as ‘molesta/peligrosa/nociva’.
The project will also pay special attention to certain other important factors which should be taken care of before a premises is opened: accessibility, soundproofing and hygiene. Often, planning permission will be required for alterations or extensions to property in order to adapt it to the relevant regulations.
