Service Description

Anyone who collects, transports, trades or brokers non-hazardous waste must notify the competent authority once before commencing their activities. Since June 1, 2014, this also applies to so-called commercial enterprises (e.g. craft businesses). The purpose of the notification requirement is to ensure that all companies that carry out one of the aforementioned waste-related activities are registered with the relevant competent authority.

Anyone who collects, transports, trades or brokers hazardous waste generally requires a permit to do so. Anyone who already has a transport permit under waste legislation or a brokerage permit under previous waste legislation can continue to use this as long as the permit is still valid and no significant changes have occurred. Otherwise, a permit is required.

The permit can be

  • nationwide or for one or more federal states,
  • indefinitely or for a specific period of time,
  • for all types of waste declared as hazardous or selected types of waste in accordance with the Waste Catalogue Ordinance (AVV).

Exempt from the permit requirement for hazardous waste by law are public waste management authorities and specialist waste management companies. Further exemptions from the permit requirement are possible by ordinance or special law. Such exemptions currently apply to

  • Collectors, transporters, dealers and brokers of hazardous waste who operate as part of commercial enterprises,

Collectors and transporters of hazardous waste for recovery that is taken back by the producer or distributor voluntarily or on the basis of a statutory order,

  • collectors and transporters of hazardous end-of-life vehicles,
  • collectors, transporters, dealers and brokers of hazardous waste batteries,
  • collectors, transporters, dealers and brokers of hazardous waste electrical and electronic equipment,
  • collectors and carriers of hazardous waste who collect or transport waste by sea-going vessels, and
