Operating Licenses of Shops
We take care of all the bureaucratic process for issuing your store’s operating license, without the slightest involvement on your part.
Concept of Operating License - Notification
In order to start the operation of any store of any business activity, the issuance of an “Operating Permit” is first required. In recent years, the legislative framework for Operating Permits for Healthcare Stores has changed and now the interested party simply notifies the start of operation as well as all the details of their business through the “Notify Business” electronic platform, after first securing the corresponding Installation Certificate from the competent authority service of the Municipality where the store is located.
Which shops are considered healthy?
Shops of Health Interest are considered to be those in which food and beverages are manufactured and/or made available or distributed or traded or stored or preserved, as well as shops offering services, due to which damage to public health may be caused, as detailed in the applicable health regulations layouts, such as for example bakeries, patisseries, steakhouses, food supermarkets, grocery stores, butchers, fishmongers, fruitmongers, wineries, cheese shops, pastry shops, mass catering businesses, leisure, restaurants, bars, ouzo, refreshments, canteens, cafes-cafeterias, hairdressing salons , hand-foot care shops, tattoo workshops and various related activities .
What is the procedure for submitting the notification?
Initially, it is investigated whether the installation of the specific store in the specific location is allowed in terms of permitted Land Uses of the area, whether the property is legally existing or has irregularities that should be settled, if the space is considered “main use” and not auxiliary (such as a warehouse), even if its specific use is permitted by the Regulations of the Apartment Building in which it is located. An Installation Certificate is then issued by the competent Municipality within 15 days from the date of the application, then the corresponding Fee is paid (185.00 euros for usual cases of Health Interest Stores, an amount that varies in supermarkets depending on the area) and a fee ( within five (5) months from the date of issuance of the Installation Certificate) the Notification is submitted electronically to the “Notify Business” system, by filling in a special declaration form of all the details of the business.

Our customers review
My collaboration with the technical company Europlan lasts for years because they have proven to me their ability to create homes that stand out while at the same time their specialization in luxury holiday homes is known, both in terms of design and construction. Personally for me it is very important to have partners whose work adds value to the money which - anyway - you have to invest.
The quality of the construction absolutely met our standards and expectations. We have a second plot in Elounda and when the time comes to build, we will definitely work with Europlan again.
As the owner of three villas in the area of Plaka, I highly recommend the technical company Europlan for the execution of design and construction of any technical project.
