Why are there legal exemptions with regard to some crafts?

For some crafts that represent a special risk to the health or safety of the service recipients if provided despite insufficient qualification of the service provider, the competent Chamber of Trades and Crafts may check your professional qualifications before you are allowed to perform your service in Germany for the first time.
