  3. Critical infrastructure
  4. Examples

  

Conditions for entry related to residence:

The Czech territory can be entered by:

  • Czech citizens,
  • EU citizens,
  • third country citizens with short-term or long-term visa issued in the Czech Republic,
  • third country citizens with long-term or permanent residence permit in another EU member state, in which case the work performance (construction, service, repairs) must not exceed a period of 7 consequent days or 30 days in total in a calendar year.
     

Third country citizens, with the exception of those who have a residence permit issued in the Czech Republic, must have a Confirmation for critical-infrastructure workers for the purpose of entry (template available at the MoI website).

  

Conditions for entry related to the epidemic:

If the person entering CZ has stayed in the territory of a red-zone country for more than 12 hours in the last 14 days:

  • obligation to inform a regional hygienic station, undergo a PCR test in the Czech Republic and submit the testing result to the regional hygienic station within 72 hours of entry
  • otherwise the person will be ordered to take the necessary quarantine measures

The limitation of free movement within the Czech territory and the obligation to wear respiratory protective equipment (face mask) apply until the PCR test result is submitted or for the duration of the necessary quarantine measures.
 

If the person entering CZ has not stayed in the territory of a red-zone country for more than 12 hours in the last 14 days (i.e. has only stayed in a green-zone country or spent less than 12 hours in a red-zone country):

  • there is no obligation to contact a regional hygienic station or to undergo a PCR test or undergo necessary quarantine measures after entering the territory.

  

Critical infrastructure:

A critical infrastructure in the Czech Republic is an element of critical infrastructure or a system of critical infrastructure elements, a disruption of which would have a serious impact on state security, the provision of basic living needs of the population, people’s health or state economy1.

This includes the following sectors2:

POWER INDUSTRY, WATER ENGINEERING, FOOD INDUSTRY AND AGRICULTURE, HEALTHCARE, TRANSPORT, COMMUNICATION AND INFORMATION SYSTEMS, FINANCIAL TRADE AND CURRENCY, EMERGENCY SERVICE AND PUBLIC SERVICE.

An entity which is, by its nature, established as a critical infrastructure entity, can issue their own Confirmation for critical-infrastructure workers, however, it must be stamped and signed by liaison security worker.

For entities that are not designated as a critical infrastructure entity, but their activity is important for a critical infrastructure entity’s operation (e.g. cleaning station staff that cleans storage tanks), confirmation for said workers can be issued by the critical infrastructure entity that requires the work of said external workers.

  • The exception therefore applies to workers, whose presence is absolutely necessary to maintain critical infrastructure in operation.
  • Not necessarily employees strictly, but also those who perform services/work necessary to maintain critical infrastructure in operation, are exempted

  

Examples:

  • company workers for securing essential works in nuclear power plants,

  • staff inspecting turbines and other parts of power plants or heating plants (e.g. filters) that are necessary for their operation,

  • employees of companies providing transport of technological units to heating and power plants,
    urgent service of boilers, turbines, generators,

  • service of malfunctions, service repairs and commissioning of biomass boiler technology, which is, in case of foreign technology, carried out directly by the biomass technology producers’ service workers, the nearest service centres of which are in neighbouring countries (primarily Germany),

  • service of malfunctions, service repairs and commissioning of wind power plants, that is mostly carried out directly by the wind power plant technology producers’ service workers, the nearest service centres of which are in neighbouring countries,

  • service of malfunctions, service repairs and commissioning of biogas plants, that is carried out directly by the biogas plant technology producer’s service workers - cogeneration units (e.g. Jenbacher and MAN technology), the nearest service centres of which are in neighbouring countries,

  • service of malfunctions, service repairs and commissioning of photovoltaic plants, that in serious cases is carried out directly by service workers of the producers or exclusive importers of photovoltaic plants, batteries and inverters to the EU, the nearest service centres of which are in neighbouring countries for more serious interventions,

  • service of malfunctions, service repairs and commissioning of heat pumps, that in serious cases is carried out directly by service workers of the producers or exclusive importers of heat pumps to the EU (e.g. Stiebel Eltron, Nibe, Viessmann, IVT, AEG, Toshiba technology), the nearest service centres of which are in neighbouring countries for more serious interventions,

  • service of malfunctions, service repairs and commissioning of water and telecommunication (data boxes, optical cables) infrastructure,

  • experts on critical infrastructure control systems and repairs of IRS vehicles, IRS helicopters, IRS technology etc.

  • in necessary cases, repair and service workers for production technologies in agricultural and food production, (including the production of packaging),

  • workers managing and servicing chemical and pharmaceutical operations (eg manufacture of protective equipment, disinfection, hygiene products),

  • liable workers, according to the Act on Cyber Security, providing information and communication systems necessary e.g. to secure critical infrastructure operation, telecommunication services, CZ domains, hospitals, datacentres (e.g. failure of data centre or a component, information system for pipeline management, router, switch, technical component failure, hospital information system failure).
