Hello everyone, 

Today, I present to you a suitability certificate for a premises in Cuevas de San Marcos (Málaga).


The commercial space is a haberdashery with a built area of less than 750m².

The space is located on the ground floor of a three-story building, situated on the right side and separate from the rest of the floors. It has dual access, one of which is via a ramp, with lighting towards the exterior road. There have been no modifications or alterations to either the façade or the interior.

The total area of the commercial space is 69.72m². Its interior is distributed as follows:

- Vestibule: 7.76m².

- Sales room: 32.41m².

- Storage room: 12.18m².

- Patio: 14.06m².

- Bathroom: 3.31m².


This project was carried out at RBM Architecture Studio by architect Raúl Benítez Molina.

A suitability certificate for a commercial premises is a document issued by a specialized technician indicating that a particular space complies with the necessary requirements and regulations for conducting specific commercial activities in that location. Its main purpose is to ensure that the premises comply with zoning regulations, safety, public health, and any other legal requirements applicable to the type of business intended to be established in that space, in order to obtain the opening license from municipal authorities.

Additionally, it addresses emergency exits, lighting, signage, as well as fire alarm, detection, and safety systems, including the maximum occupancy of the premises, which is 20 people.


The author of the document certifies that the stationery store with a constructed area of less than 750m² meets the characteristics and adjustments perfectly feasible as indicated in the submitted memorandum to the local authorities. The current regulations, including:

- Building Technical Code DB-SI (Basic Document for Fire Safety) and DB-SUA (Basic Document for Accessibility and Use),
