Service Description

Operators of treatment plants for the processing of waste wood for the production of wood-based materials are obliged to have tests and examinations on the pollutant content of waste wood carried out regularly by bodies notified by the competent authority.

If you want to carry out these inspections, you must apply to the competent authority of the country to designate you as an inspection body for the announcement. The announcement or designation is valid for the entire federal territory.


Process flow

You submit an informal application for designation as an inspection body for waste wood to the authority of the federal state in which you have your place of business. If your place of business is abroad, submit the application in the federal state in which you will primarily carry out the investigation activity.

Proceed as follows:

  • Prepare the informal application and attach the required documents. If necessary, the authority will request further application documents.
  • If you wish to enclose equivalent recognitions and certificates from another member state of the European Union or another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area with the application, these documents must be submitted prior to commencement of the activity.
    The authority may request a certified German translation for the foreign equivalent recognitions and proofs.
  • After examination by the competent authority, you will receive a written decision as to whether you are designated for notification as an examination body.
  • The authority may attach a reservation of revocation, a time limit, conditions, requirements or the reservation of conditions to the designation.
  • The announcement is then made via the research system Measuring Points and Experts of the Federal States (ReSyMeSa).
