One single point of contact for Dortmund

Europe is developing into a competitive, dynamic and knowledge-based economic area. To make it easier to overcome any obstacles you might come up against when providing your services or locating within the European single market, the 2009 “EU services directive” made it mandatory to set up standardized single points of contact. This network forms the basis for enabling you to carry out all the necessary administration procedures electronically from wherever you are. You can find out if your plans to expand need to fulfil any particular formalities in the DLZW and at the Single Point of Contact for Dortmund internet site.
