Occupational disease; application for recognition

You can apply for recognition of an occupational disease.


Illnesses that have arisen in insured persons of the statutory accident insurance as a result of harmful effects during an insured activity can be recognized as occupational diseases. What constitutes an occupational disease is determined by the Federal Government by ordinance (Occupational Diseases Ordinance). The master of the occupational disease determination procedure is the accident insurance institution.

In Bavaria, the statutory accident insurance institutions are obliged to involve the industrial medical service in the occupational disease determination procedure if they intend to reject an occupational disease. The industrial physician is independent in his assessment and thus contributes to objective decision-making and professional quality assurance.
