Investigation authorisation certificate

If you are under 18 years of age and want to start working (training), you must first be examined by a doctor (initial examination). The examination will determine whether you are physically and developmentally suitable for this profession. This is to prevent you from suffering health damage as a result of work. After the examination, you will receive a certificate. You must present these to your employer. You do not need an examination if you start a minor job or if you work only for a short period of time (maximum 2 months). This applies, for example, to a holiday job or a student internship. The country pays the costs of the investigation. You must apply for the initial examination in order to reimburse the costs of the investigation.
