Emissions / immissions: toleration, protection

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

As a neighbour of a plant, which can be a company or even just a piece of land, you must tolerate immissions to a certain extent if you are not or only insignificantly affected by this. How much damage you have to accept usually depends on whether or not there is a significant nuisance, harmful environmental impact or other hazards (for example, factory noise in the vicinity of industrial sites or pollutant emissions from industrial plants).

An insignificant impairment exists, for example, if the immission values of the TA-Lärm ("Technical Instructions for Protection against Noise") or the TA-Luft ("Technical Instructions for Air Pollution Control") are not exceeded and the emission values are complied with at the plants as a precaution against harmful environmental effects. Higher requirements are placed on plants requiring approval than on plants that do not require approval.


Who should I contact?
  • To your municipal, official or city administration when it comes to the immission control monitoring of private households, restaurants, facilities at markets, sports or folk festivals as well as for agricultural and forestry facilities that do not require approval under immission control law.
  • To the State Office for the Environment of the State of Schleswig-Holstein (LfU), when it comes to the monitoring of commercial plants (including power plants, intensive animal farms, craft businesses; immission control permits) goes.
Legal basis
