Chemicals; application for recognition of a training course for the acquisition of expertise

The recognition of a training event according to § 5 para. 2 clause 1 ChemOzonSchichtV takes place by decision of the Bavarian State Office for the Environment after examination of the application with the submitted documents.


The required expertise of persons carrying out certain work - such as the recovery or withdrawal of refrigerants that deplete the ozone layer or the inspection and maintenance of equipment containing them - shall be demonstrated, inter alia, by participation in a training course. This training course must be recognised by the competent authority.

If you wish to have a so-called advanced training course recognised, you must submit an application to the competent authority. Courses with the headquarters of the training provider in Bavaria can be applied for at the Bavarian State Office for the Environment.

The application must be made informally and in writing. The venue and date of the course must be stated. The relevant documents can be found under "Required documents".


The training course to be recognised must impart the knowledge required for the respective area of responsibility. This includes knowledge about

  • Plant technology,
  • the relevant regulations, directives and generally recognised rules of technology, as well as
  • the essential properties of the substances and preparations/mixtures concerned and the hazards associated with their use.
The assessment of whether the prerequisites for the recognition of training events are met shall be made in accordance with the "Principles for the Recognition of Training Events in Accordance with Section 5, Para. 2, No. 1 of the ChemOzone Layer Ordinance" drawn up by the German Chemical Safety Association (BLAC).
