  • Proportionality information

    1. Have you examined whether the requirements under your national legal system are
    directly or indirectly discriminatory on the basis of nationality or residence?
       Slovak legal system is without discrimination on the basis of nationality or residence. Conditions for certification of professional qualification are not discriminating.

    2. Which of the following overriding reasons relating to the general interest justifies the measure(s)?
         
    • Preservation of cultural, historical, archaeological and artistic heritage

    3. What specific risks or benefits have you identified that your measure(s) is designed to, respectively, minimise or maximise?

       Please try to be specific in describing the nature of the risks/benefits you have identified
       Where you have selected more than one overriding reason relating to the general interest in question 2 please be sure to address each of these in your response. Wherever possible please include evidence.

       Restoration means renewal of cultural monuments and collection of  fine art with goal to protect artistic monuments from damage and ensure that restoration will ensure the keeping their origin of historical and aesthetic value.
    Restoration involves mainly research, conserving, interpreting the aesthetic value of the work and documentation.

    4. How specifically do your measures operate to minimise the risk(s) or maximise the benefit(s) identified in question 3?

       When addressing this question please try to explain how the measures prevent the risks or guarantee the benefits.
       Where you have selected more than one overriding reason relating to the general interest in question 2 please be sure to address each of these in your response. Wherever possible please include evidence.

       In effort to guarantee the quality of restoration work it is important for it to be practiced by people meeting the qualification requirements. Requirements are defined in the act Nr. 200/1994 Z. z. follows: vocational post-secondary education in the field of restoration than is required 3 years of practice and pass vocational exam of restoration. Restorer is also member of Chamber of restorers of Slovakia.

    5. In so far as you are able, please provide information that you have gathered regarding the concrete effects of the measure(s).

       For example, through impact assessments or information gathered during implementation or review of a measure. Member States who have recently undergone reforms may in particular be able to contribute helpfully to this field. Where you are able to provide cost-benefit analyses this would be particularly valuable.
       Information on whether the measures indeed successfully prevented risks from being realised (e.g. the number of sanctions imposed, a drop in transgressions since the measure was introduced or consequences from previous modifications of the regulation) would equally be helpful.
       Where you have selected more than one overriding reason relating to the general interest in question 2 please be sure to address each of these in your response. You may also wish to include evidence on consumer satisfaction or other measurements of the impact.

        There is no relevant information on the concrete effects of the measures. However, the goal of the regulation is the minimalization of the unauthorized practice of such profession.

    6. Is the general interest objective you indicated in question 2 pursued in a consistent and systematic manner?.

       In approaching your response to this question please consider examples where you have addressed similar risks for comparable professions, not necessarily within the same sector. Is the approach you have adopted in this particular profession comparable or distinct from such similar cases and why?

       Yes, the general interest is pursued in a consistent manner, requirements are focus of  the professional qualification of conservators.

    7. Please explain in how far the degree of complexity or the nature of the activities
    which are reserved justify that these activities can be exclusively performed by professionals possessing a specific professional qualification?

       For example: when the tasks are essentially of a straightforward nature (such as preparing and printing pay slips etc.), or involve essentially the execution of instructions, specific professional aptitudes should not be required.

       The unqualified and poor-quality practice of this profession can lead not only to financial loss of the consumer but also temporary or permanent dammage on the objects restorated, therefore it is inevitable for only people metting the qualification requirements to practice it.

    8. Where you have indicated several measures in place in the screening tab,
    have you reviewed the cumulative effect of all these measures on professional activities?

       If not, why not?
       If yes, please outline for us how you approached assessing this issue as well as the results and conclusions or any learning you drew from this. Where possible please include evidence.

       No cummulative effect is known in this case.

    9. Have you considered the use of alternative mechanisms to achieve your objective(s)?
         
    • Other, please specify

       Please briefly explain. Where you have selected more than one option, please be sure to address each of these in your response.

       According to the high demands and specific nature of the profession using of alternative mechanism was not considered.
