Biowaste; application for designation as a body for carrying out tests

Tests on biowaste and application soils must only be carried out by bodies that have been designated by the competent authority or that have equivalent recognition from another EU state or EEA state.



An inspection body (applicant) is designated (notified) for certain inspections of biowaste and application soils for biowaste in accordance with the Biowaste Ordinance if the applicant

  • is reliable
  • has the necessary independence for the tests
  • has the necessary expertise for the respective tests
  • has the necessary technical equipment for the tests
  • has demonstrated in regular quality assurance measures that he has the technical competence
  • has introduced a quality assurance system in accordance with DIN ISO EN 17025 and
  • can demonstrate successful participation in the transnational round robin test (LÜRV)


The applicant does not have to observe any deadlines when submitting his application for designation (notification) as a body for specific investigations. In the case of an existing notification, the application for renewal must be submitted to the competent body in good time before the notification expires.
