Mandatory membership of a chamber of commerce

Traders, who are based in the State of Rheinland-Pfalz are subject to mandatory membership in one of the Chambers of Commerce of the State. Artisans must be members of the Chambers of Crafts of the State, while the other traders must be member of one of the Chambers of Industry and Commerce of the State.

An exception is made for entrepreneurs from EU Member States, as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, who are involved in cross-border activities without establishing business here: they only need to notify the chambers of their activities prior to their start.
