Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

Anyone wishing to work with, store, deliver or export pathogens for the first time must notify the competent authority. If the notification of the activity with pathogens has already been laid down in another procedure regulated by federal law, reference may be made to the documents submitted there.

All activities involving pathogens must be reported to the competent authority, regardless of whether they are exempt from or subject to authorization.

The competent authority must also be notified of any significant change,

  • the nature and scope of the activity,
  • the nature of rooms and facilities and
  • the disposal measures.

The termination or resumption of the activity must also be notified.


Who should I contact?

To the independent city or district (health department).

Which documents are required?

The notification must contain

  • Information on the nature and scope of the intended activities,
  • information on the disposal measures,
  • information on the nature of the premises and facilities,
  • for activities requiring a permit: a certified copy of the permit (unless the permit was issued by the competent authority),
  • for activities not requiring a permit: Information on the exemption from authorization.
What are the fees?

Fees may apply. The responsible office will provide information on this.

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

The competent authority must be notified in writing at least 30 days before the activity with pathogens commences for the first time.

The activity may only commence if the notification is complete and the activity is not prohibited following an inspection of the documents and the premises. If the authority agrees, the commercial handling of pathogens may commence before the 30-day period has expired.

The competent authority must be notified immediately of any significant change.

Legal basis

§ Section 49 Act on the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases in Humans (Infection Protection Act - IfSG)

What else should I know?
