Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

To record the proportionate heat or hot water consumption for the purpose of cost allocation when operating central heating or hot water supply systems, only equipment for which a confirmation has been issued by expert bodies may be used, unless calibration regulations apply. This confirmation proves that the systems comply with the recognized rules of technology or that their suitability has been proven in another way.

In order to be allowed to operate, expert bodies must prove their suitability to the competent authority in the relevant federal state. The authority confirms the suitability of the expert body in consultation with the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) and assigns it a serial number.
