Business licences

Environmental licences

The Environment Centre of Central Uusimaa is responsible for environmental control in the municipality of Tuusula. In most cases, environmental licences can be applied for via the service. The essential parts of the environmental licence application must always be in Finnish to enable the participation of the parties involved. The applicant must therefore make use of translation services, if necessary. Environmental Inspector Kaisa Autio-Nousiainen is able to provide support on the use of the Lupapiste service in matters concerning the Environment Centre.

Private social and health services

Private social and health services complement and offer alternatives to the municipal services. Private service providers, referring mainly to companies, organisations and foundations, can sell their services to municipalities and joint municipal authorities or directly to customers.

The most common private social and health services include the following:

  • institutional and family care for children and young people 
  • service housing and home services
  • child day care
  • physiotherapy services
  • doctor's and dentist's practices
  • occupational health care.

The private provision of social and health care services is subject to authorisation. If you intend to engage in business activities in the field, contact the municipal Business Liaison Officer Toni Popovic at
