What is the responsible opening declaration?

The responsible opening declaration is the simplest procedure that exists for opening a business.

This opening procedure consists of an application/form drawn up by the local council where the interested party signs a series of points and takes responsibility that the activity he/she is opening complies with current regulations.

On the other hand, the town hall asks for a Responsable Model signed by an engineer. This document consists of 3 sheets where the most important parts of the premises are described, here is the link where you can find this document. The Generalitat describes them as environmentally friendly activities.

In it you should enter points such as:

  • Details of the owner
  • Classification of the activity ( law 16/2015 and CCAE)
  • Surface areas and heights
  • Occupation
  • List of machinery
  • Types of supplies
  • Cadastral reference
  • Sketch

Here is the important part, for innocuous activities, each town council manages them according to its own criteria and asks for the documentation it deems appropriate. For example, in Caldes de Montbui they only ask for the application signed by the owner and the Model DR signed by the engineer. On the other hand, in Barcelona, these are classified according to Annex III.3 and they also ask for a descriptive technical report, location plan, site plan, floor plan and section.

In other words, in short, they ask for a simplified project. Therefore, the cost of opening a shop is higher in Barcelona than elsewhere.
