If all the criteria in the list of criteria are met for buildings in building classes 1 to 3, containers, bridges, retaining walls, grandstands and other structures with a free height of more than 10 m that are not buildings, there is no need for a certificate of stability from a structural safety expert or an inspection of stability by the lower building supervisory authority, an inspection engineer or an inspection authority.
However, a declaration of compliance with the list of criteria issued by a qualified structural engineer, usually the author of the stability certificate, must be submitted for this purpose.
If the building project is a special building, the declaration must be submitted with the building application. Otherwise, submission with the notification of commencement of construction is sufficient.
Notwithstanding the above, the declaration does not have to be submitted for residential buildings in building classes 1 and 2 or single-storey buildings above ground with free spans of no more than 12 m and an area of no more than 1,600 m² that are not intended for the temporary residence of individual persons or only for temporary residence.
Digital submission of the declaration of compliance with the criteria catalog is not yet possible throughout Bavaria. This is only possible with certain lower building supervisory authorities. You can find out what these are in § 1 of the Digital Building Application Ordinance. You can find the link under the "Legal basis" tab.
- The structural engineer who prepared the proof of stability can submit the declaration of compliance with the catalog of criteria digitally using the online assistant.
- The prescribed form "Declaration of compliance with the catalog of criteria" is replaced by the queries in the online assistant.
- The signature is replaced by authentication using the "BayernID" user account.
In order to enable the lower building supervisory authority to assign the digital building application or the digital notification of the start of construction, it is necessary to provide the process number that was communicated to the submitter when the digital building application or the digital notification of the start of construction was submitted.
The declaration of compliance with the list of criteria is not a separate application; depending on the project, it must be submitted with the building application or with the notification of the start of construction.
