Moldovan authorities require mandatory documents for businesses to conduct a number of activities.  The full list of such activities are regulated by the Law on Regulation of Entrepreneurial Activity.  There are 48 activities subject to licensing requirements, including: auditing, banking, insurance, and private medical assistance.  Consultancy is not among licensed business activities.  Some professions require proof of qualifications, rather than a license.  Professional lawyers will have to pass tests to become members of the Moldovan Bar Association in order to practice law.  The Ministry of Finance or the National Bank of Moldova must certify proficiency in finance for individual auditors.
