The Law N º 29073, Law for Artisan and Development of Craft Activity was promulgated first. Later through the Supreme Decree 001-2008-MINCETUR, the Regulations of the National Register of Artisan and the National Council for the Artisan Promotion, created by Articles 12º and 30º of the Law No. 29073, which allowed to collect experience regarding these issues. In this context, there is necessity to standardize various aspects of craft activity regulated by Law No. 29073, so we proceeded to its regulation.
Currently MINCETUR has developed a Website about Information System for the Promotion and Development of the artisan to share all necessary information on artisan aspects from commercial perspective. Furthermore, this system works with the National Directory of Artisans which has information of all Peruvian artisans registered on the National Register of Artisan either as individual artisans, craft enterprises or artisan associations.
