Amendments to the Chamber of Builders Act as regards the foreign companies and individuals performing construction of 1st to 5th category

Amendments to the Chamber of Builders Act have been accepted under the Act for amendment and supplement of the Provision of Services Act, State Gazette issue number 83 of 2013. The previous provision stated that the registration of builders performing construction of 1st to 5th category in the relevant register of a member state of EU, EEC or Switzerland had the power of registration in the Central Register of Professional Builders. On the contrary, the new amendments to the Chamber of Builders Act now stipulate the mandatory registration of the builders mentioned above in the Central Register of Professional Builders.

The new provision 25a for the first time provides cases for temporary or single construction services provided by companies or individuals which are allowed to perform construction works under the national law of a member state of EU, EEC or Switzerland. In these cases the companies or the individuals mentioned above only notify the Commission to manage, maintain and use the Central Register of Professional Builders about the correct and full name of the building according to the issued construction permit by presenting all the evidences which prove that the builders are able to perform construction works under the national law of a member-state of EU, EEC or Switzerland, a copy of construction permit or a copy of a contract signed with the general contractor. Consequently, the commission issues a certificate for a single or temporary construction service.
