Service Description

If you want to collect or transport hazardous waste or trade in hazardous waste, you must apply for a permit for this activity from the competent authority.

If you wish to take up a waste management activity involving hazardous waste, e.g. as a collector, transporter, trader and broker of hazardous waste, you must apply for a permit for this activity from the competent authority. If you are exempt from the permit requirement, notification of your activity is sufficient. If you have already received a permit for your activity and there have been significant changes in circumstances, you must reapply for the permit. The permit requirement applies to both national and transboundary waste shipments.


Process flow

If you wish to take up this activity for the first time as a collector, transporter, trader and broker of hazardous waste or if significant circumstances of your activity have changed, you must apply for a permit from the competent authority. You can do this by e-mail or by using the online form to enter your details and submit the required documents. In the case of the online form, you must sign the application with a qualified electronic signature in order to complete it. This can be done, for example, using the signature card used in the electronic waste verification procedure and the card reader used there. Signature software from the company Governikus, Signer WebEdition, is required for the signature. The software must be installed locally on your computer system beforehand. The download with instructions is available on the GOES website. The authority will send you an acknowledgement of receipt. After reviewing the application and your documents, the authority may

  • request additional documents or
  • grant the permit with or without conditions, or
  • reject the permit.
