Most industrial activities need to be licensed for a variety of different reasons such as public health and safety, or to reduce the risk of pollution.

Local government is the only body that currently issues licenses for commercial activities. Building licenses and user licenses for private works are governed by legislation, specifically legislation on regional planning and urban construction.


Some activities that require licensing:

  • Banks;
  • Insurance;
  • Trust & Trustee;
  • Cryptocurrency.
