What is an opening license?

The opening license is a municipal license for an establishment to carry out an activity.  It is granted to the owner of a business for the development of a specific activity in a specific location. In short, it is a document that allows a business to open

It must be renewed every time the activity carried out in the establishment changes.  It can be transferred from one owner to another as long as the activity is the same in the same place. 

To obtain it and carry out the activity, a technical project must be submitted to the Town Council of the municipality, which explains the type of business and the justification of the regulations that must be complied with. The establishment will have to adapt to the required regulations. To do so, the relevant works will have to be carried out, if necessary. 

For the opening of technically simple activities, the license can be processed by means of a responsible declaration with validation by a competent technician.
