Waste disposal: Waste transportation - Permit

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

Collectors and transporters of hazardous waste require a permit from the competent authority in the federal state in which the company has its headquarters (Section 54 of the Closed Substance Cycle Waste Management Act (Kreislaufwirtschaftsgesetz - KrWG)). In all other cases of waste transportation, this activity must be reported to the competent authority (§ 53 KrWG). As part of the official procedure, the expertise, specialist knowledge and reliability of the company owner or the persons responsible for managing the company are checked, among other things.

Pursuant to paragraph 3, public waste management authorities and specialized waste management companies within the meaning of § 56 KrWG are exempt from the licensing requirement pursuant to § 54 para. 1 sentence 1 KrWG insofar as they are certified for the activity requiring a permit. However, activities within the meaning of Section 53 (1) KrWG are subject to notification.

§ Section 53 (1) to (5) and Section 54 (1) to (6) KrWG do not apply to collectors and carriers who collect or transport waste as part of commercial enterprises (e.g. tradespeople) until two years after this law comes into force on June 1, 2012. The legislator has issued the Notification and Permit Ordinance (AbfAEV) to specify the requirements and procedures.
