Service Description

With the excavation certificate, the construction company receives the approval of the road authority to carry out the construction project on its land. The road owner registers the construction project and thus has the opportunity to check the proper restoration during or after completion of the construction work and after the end of the warranty period.

Each excavation changes the condition and quality of the traffic area. The coordination of excavations is important in order to minimize subsequent costs for the general public and the client of the excavation must be known in order to establish warranty claims.

More legal certainty is created for all parties involved, as the excavation site is documented, from which the rights and obligations of the parties involved can be derived.

Excavations in public traffic areas are therefore generally subject to approval.


The excavation certificate must be kept ready by the company carrying out the work at the work site for inspection purposes.

Exception: laying or changing telecommunications lines. According to § 68 TKG, no excavation permit is required for this, only the consent of the road construction authority (from 01.12.2021: § 127 TKG). Operating and maintenance work is not subject to approval, as this work is covered by the approval granted for the installation.

.Note:

Corresponding usage agreements may also have to be concluded when laying lines on roads.
