PSC – Points of Single Contact
In line with the Services Directive, Points of Single Contact (PSC) have been established in all EU countries through which administrative formalities can be completed electronically when doing cross border business in Europe. The recently adapted Professional Qualifications Directive also foresees Points of Single Contact (PSC).
This portal brings you to the respective Point of Single Contact of each Austrian "Land" where you can
- obtain information on the procedures you need to complete in order to provide your service
- complete all administrative formalities (no need to contact each authority separately)
- in an electronic way.
