Point of Single Contact Schleswig-Holstein (EA-SH) Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

The EA helps service providers to complete formalities, for example when dealing with the authorities.

The Point of Single Contact Schleswig-Holstein (EA-SH) is an institution under public law under common sponsorship of the state, municipalities and chambers of commerce, based in Kiel.

Service providers, i.e. start-ups, traders and entrepreneurs, can use the EA-SH to handle administrative procedures and formalities relating to their entrepreneurial activities in Schleswig-Holstein. There is a legal entitlement to fully electronic procedure processing. The service of the EA-SH can be used by both domestic and (EU) foreign service providers.

The service providers thus have only one single point of contact. Visiting individual authorities and institutions is then usually no longer necessary. The EA-SH coordinates and handles the application process. In this respect, it is a procedural intermediary between service providers and competent authorities.

Direct contact with the competent authority is optionally still possible.

The information of the EA-SH is easily accessible on the Internet and the EA-SH can be contacted electronically, by telephone and in person. Applications can be submitted electronically - depending on the wishes of the service provider - and the decision is also issued electronically.

In addition to support in the application process, the EA-SH provides extensive information on the administrative procedures and formalities required in individual cases as well as the contact information of the competent authorities and other institutions. The EA-SH also provides information on the means and conditions for access to public registers and databases, as well as on legislation and remedies.

The EA-SH is a unified body within the meaning of §§ 138 a - e Landesverwaltungsgesetz des Landes Schleswig-Holstein and §§ 71 a - e Verwaltungsverfahrensgesetz des Bundes.
