Principle and conditions

The running of premises that are open to the public (bars, restaurants, etc.) or the organisation of evening events are regulated with the purpose of ensuring public order and peace. A preliminary application for authorisation must therefore be made to the regulatory authority for all such activities.

Any establishment or event organiser wishing to play music or to organise a musical performance (concert, DJ, karaoke, dance show, etc.) either on a regular or one-off basis, must apply in advance for authorisation from the Minister of State.

If the application is for permanent authorisation, the applicant must provide proof, at his/her own expense, that all necessary steps have taken to prevent noise pollution and to ensure the peace of the area.

The authorisation specifies all measures (sound level, time limits) that are necessary to ensure the protection of the environment, public order and peace.

This authorisation may be withdrawn by law, regardless of whether complaints have been received from local residents. Similarly, upon change of management the authorisation becomes invalid.
