The construction and operation of certain installations requires a permit under immission control law. These installations include those which, due to their nature or operation, are particularly likely to

  • cause harmful effects on the environment or
  • otherwise endanger, significantly disadvantage or significantly inconvenience the general public or the neighborhood.

The Ordinance on Installations Requiring a Permit - 4th BImSchV regulates

  • which installations require a permit in accordance with Section 4 of the Federal Immission Control Act and
  • whether a simple or a formal approval procedure with public participation is required.

In addition to the licensing requirement, there is a notification requirement for certain installations in accordance with the following immission control regulations:

  • Individual combustion plants with a rated thermal input of 10 megawatts to 20 megawatts (Ordinance on Small and Medium-Sized Combustion Plants - 1st BImSchV),
  • Installations in which volatile halogenated organic compounds are used as solvents, insofar as the installations do not require a permit in accordance with the Federal Immission Control Act (Ordinance on the Limitation of Emissions of Volatile Halogenated Organic Compounds - 2nd BImSchV),
  • Operating areas in which hazardous substances are present in quantities that reach or exceed certain quantity thresholds (Hazardous Incident Ordinance - 12th BImSchV),
  • Installations for the storage or transfer of petrol in tank farms or at filling stations, insofar as these do not require a permit in accordance with the Federal Immission Control Act (Ordinance on the Limitation of Emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds during the Transfer and Storage of Petrol - 20th BImSchV),
