Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

As a company, you must comply with certain registration and verification obligations when handling hazardous waste.

If you have more than 2 tons of hazardous waste to dispose of per year, you will need a waste producer number.

The waste producer number

  • is a nine-digit identification number that you need as a waste producer or waste owner in order to be able to participate in the electronic waste verification procedure (eANV) for the disposal of hazardous waste,
  • identifies the place where the waste is generated or generated,
  • is necessary, among other things, in order to be able to demonstrate the proper and environmentally sound disposal of hazardous waste.

You will need a waste producer number for disposal permits and consignment notes. In addition, you will need the number for entry in the so-called takeover slip when waste is collected and disposed of with a collective disposal certificate. For this purpose, a maximum of 20 tonnes per calendar year, point of generation and waste code are permitted.

If you have multiple sites that generate hazardous waste, you will need to apply for a separate waste generator number for each site.

Hints:

  • In the event of a move, the previous producer number will become invalid. Please apply for a new waste producer number for the new location.
  • In the event of a change in the name of the company, the previous producer number will remain the same if it is not accompanied by a change in legal identity.

Process flow
  • You can apply for the waste producer number from most competent authorities via the online service.
    • Some authorities provide for other ways of applying.
  • The competent authority shall first verify that the information is complete and plausible and that the necessary documents have been attached.
    • If necessary, it will request information and documents.
  • If the information and documents are complete and plausible, the authority will assign a company number and provide it to you.
