Commercial waste; application for notification as a body for the performance of third-party inspections.

In principle, the plant operators only meet their obligations if they have the external inspections carried out by bodies that have been notified by the Bavarian State Office for the Environment.



A body shall only be notified for the performance of the aforementioned third-party inspections within the meaning of the Commercial Waste Ordinance if the applicant is

  • is reliable and has the necessary independence to carry out such third-party inspections,
  • has the necessary expertise to carry out such external inspections, and
  • has the necessary technical equipment to carry out such external inspections.


The applicant does not have to observe any deadlines when submitting the application for disclosure as a body.

    which is required for the performance of external inspections to ensure compliance with the requirements of the Commercial Waste Ordinance for the recovery rate and for the documentation of incoming and outgoing deliveries of waste (examination certificates, diplomas, courses and training events attended, previous inspections, references, expert opinions, etc.).

  • For applicants from the EU or EEA foreign countries

    equivalent foreign certificates shall also suffice in addition to the above-mentioned certificates of expertise and reliability if these certificates show that the above-mentioned requirements are met or that the requirements of the foreign country are essentially comparable with these requirements.
