The Official Diary of Galicia includes the resolution of 13 July 2018 establishing the regulatory bases for the concession, on a competitive basis, of subsidies for rural tourism establishments, hotels, apartments and tourist homes, tourist camps, travel agencies, cafés, bars, restaurants and complementary service companies that wish to undertake the processes of certification, monitoring and renewal of the Q for Tourism Quality.
The Q for Quality, issued by the Spanish Institute for Tourism Quality (ICTE), is governed by the corresponding UNE standards and the resolution establishes a series of concepts that can be subsidised in this process of renewal or achievement of the tourist quality mark.
These include: the costs of external audits for certification, monitoring and/or renewal of the system (excluding implementation costs) and the rights to use the Q mark during 2018.
In order to obtain these grants, you must be registered with the REAT and be an SME. The deadline for submitting applications is 31 August.
