Service Description

In mining operations, the responsibilities with regard to safety and order in mining must be clearly regulated. In addition to you as the employer and your representatives, so-called "responsible persons" also ensure that operations run smoothly.

Responsible persons are supervisors who have been appointed to manage or supervise the operation or part of the operation. Responsible persons ensure, for example, the health and safety of employees or monitor the disposal of mining waste. If no responsible persons are appointed, you as the employer are directly responsible.

If the position of responsible persons in your company changes, you must inform the competent mining authority. In doing so, you must precisely describe the tasks and powers of the responsible persons. Their powers must correspond to their tasks and abilities.


Process flow

You can report the change in the position of the responsible persons in your company online via the "BergPass" platform or in writing to your competent mountain authority.

Submit notification online:

  • Call up the "BergPass" online platform and log in.
    • You will need a BundID and an identity card or residence permit with an active online ID function.

Submit the notification in writing:

Note: In exceptional cases, the notification of the new position can also be made verbally, but must then be confirmed in writing as soon as possible.
