The Official Gazette of Galicia contains the resolution of 5 April 2019 establishing the regulatory bases for the granting, on a competitive basis, of subsidies to rural tourism establishments, hotels, tourist apartments and housing, tourist camps, travel agencies, cafes, bars, restaurants and complementary tourist service companies, in the processes of certification, monitoring and renewal of the relevant UNE standards leading to obtaining and / or maintenance of the Q mark for Tourism Quality of the Institute for Spanish Tourism Quality (ICTE). The deadline for submission of applications is one month, so it ends on 13 June.

The grants awarded may not exceed the following ceilings:
– 2,000 euros for the processes of 1st certification and/or renewal of the Q mark and 1,000 euros for monitoring processes.
– For applications whose external audit is carried out through the multi-site modality, the amount subsidised for this concept will be a maximum of 3,000 euros for processes of 1st certification and/or renewal of the Q mark and 2,000 euros for follow-up processes.
