Points of Single Contact (PSC)

The Points of Single Contact aim to assist European service sector companies in navigating through sometimes very complex national legal procedures. Points of Single Contact simplify the administrative processes by acting as case managers for each company’s enquiries. Advice provided by the PSCs is legally binding and accessible via Internet.

In North Rhine-Westphalia, the services of the single contact person for you are free of charge. Only the anyway due the technically competent authorities fees so, even if you process your concern via the points of single contact,  are no longer subject to additional charges for the services of the PSC under the EA Act North Rhine-Westphalia from 2016.
