Apply for exemption from the obligation to keep records and registers for waste management operators

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

The obligations to keep records and registers under the Closed Substance Cycle Waste Management Act (KrWG) aim to document and monitor the proper disposal of waste.

If your company generates, collects, transports or disposes of hazardous waste, you are required to keep records. With the verification documents and in the registers, the companies that generate hazardous waste and the companies involved in its disposal provide evidence of proper disposal both among themselves and to the competent authorities.

Companies that broker or trade in hazardous waste are also subject to the register requirement.

If there is no reason to fear that waste disposal will impair the general welfare, the competent authority may grant partial or total exemption from the obligation to keep records and registers.


Process flow
  • You submit the application for exemption to the competent authority together with all the information required to assess the facts of the case.
  • The authority processes your application and decides whether an exemption can be considered.
  • You will be notified of the authority's decision.
Who should I contact?

To the lower waste authorities of the respective districts or independent cities.

Requirements

Whether an exemption from verification and registration requirements can be granted is a discretionary decision of the competent authority.

In principle, an exemption is only possible if there is no reason to fear that the public interest will be adversely affected despite the exemption. In this context, the authority must take into account that there is a particularly strong public interest in keeping records and registers as standardized as possible and therefore free of exemptions.

Which documents are required?

Justification why an exemption should be granted in the specific individual case.

What are the fees?

Administration fee: 100,00 - 5000,00 EUR
Payment in advance: No

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

Prior to the commencement of the disposal to which the record or register requirement relates.
