Applying for recognition of other persons for mine surveying activities in mining

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

Mine surveyors are responsible, among other things, for creating, maintaining and expertly closing a mine plan.

A mine plan can consist of several components, which are assigned to the "mine plan" and "other documents". The mine plan has the character of a document and may only be kept by recognized mine surveyors. If there is an exception to the requirement for a mine plan, the contents of an "other document" replace the description of the mining operation or extraction.

If you are not a mine surveyor, you can obtain official recognition as an "other person" under certain conditions. You must apply for this recognition from the competent authority.

If you are recognized as an "other person", you may prepare "other documents" for the following areas for certain mining projects that do not require a mine plan:

  • Surface extraction operations,
  • Exploration and extraction operations with surface drilling that do not create underground cavities outside the borehole and
  • pore storage facilities.

These "other documents" replace the contents of a mine plan.
