The Point of Single Contact - PSC is a service office that you may contact if you want to set up or exercise services. It contributes to administrative and procedural simplification, but is not an authority and therefore takes no legal decision. The PSC also provides you with information about the recognition of professional qualifications obtained in a Member State of the EU/EEA or in Switzerland.
The PSC was set up on the basis of the EU Services Directive and the EU Professional Recognition Directive. Its use is free of charge.
The Point of Single Contact
- provides you with general and up-to-date information regarding the setting up and exercising of services or the recognition of professional qualifications, and
- accepts written applications and forwards them to the competent authorities/offices.
Additionally, the PSC will provide service providers and service consumers with information on authorities, registries and databases, institutions providing judicial remedies as well as associations and organisations.
The PSC Portal provides a summary of the necessary steps and allows service providers to deal with formalities electronically and from the distance.
"Services" includes any independent activity covered by Article 57 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (AEUV) , normally provided for remuneration.
On the pages offered by the PSC Tyrol, you will find information on requirements which apply to service providers domiciled in the Tyrol, in particular regarding the procedures and formalities pertaining to the commencement and provision of services. Apart from the procedures mentioned here, please also take note of the reporting requirements for social security and the tax authorities.
