FUE Local is a service of the AOC Consortium that was born at the beginning of 2012 under an order from the Government, with the mission of offering to the local world the different standard and homogeneous electronic procedures associated with the processing of activities business, while complying with the Internal Market Services Directive.
The work was initially developed thanks to a multidisciplinary work team, which beyond the AOC, had the invaluable collaboration of the Diputació de Barcelona, the Town Councils of Castellar del Vallès and Castellbisbal, as well as the Office of Business Management (OGE) of the Department of Business and Employment, and the Fire Prevention and Extinguishing Service of the Department of the Interior of the Generalitat de Catalunya, which have provided the work with the necessary legal and technical rigor.
Over time, the working group has been extended to other administrations, such as Barcelona City Council, and work continues in a collaborative way to adjust the model of processing activities in the territory.
The local FUE service currently has 17 electronic procedures with its file, forms, electronic processing solution, integration methods, technical tables and connection to the “Guided search for procedures” by Canal Empresa, to make it easier for councils to create their One - Stop Shop (FUE), and already has 927 town councils which are FUE, (including Barcelona City Council).
FUE Local and the laws of simplification and economic facilitation
The FUE and Law 16/2015 on simplification and the obligation of new procedures
On July 24, 2015, the Law 16/2015, of 21 July, on the simplification of the administrative activity of the administration of the Generalitat and the local governments of Catalonia and the promotion of economic activity.
This law explicitly regulates intervention regimes that affect the start and exercise of economic activities, which until now were at the expense of each city council, but it is also determined that all local entities Catalans will have to become Single Business Window (FUE) which is understood as an inter-administrative network in order to facilitate access to procedures that are the responsibility of public administrations and facilitate access to economic activity.
The FUE and Law 18/2020 on economic facilitation
On December 28, 2020, the Economic facilitation law, a pioneering regulation in Europe in the field of facilitation, which applies the principle "Only Once" whereby companies and entrepreneurs will only have to provide their data once in all their formalities with all administrations.

The standard includes measures to reduce bureaucratic burdens, minimizing administrative intervention; offers services proactively to companies a glass analyzed the data provided without the need to request it; and set a new relationship model between the company and the administrations. This new relationship model is based on mutual trust, the default digital relationship, one-time data input, the elimination of unnecessary administrative burdens, the standardization of procedures, the speed of processing, and the transparency.
The Law - which gives continuity to the Business One-Stop Shop (FUE) - is the result of a collaborative work of the Department of Business and Knowledge with representatives of the different economic agents involved.
