Fumigation for disinfection or pest control; application for a permit
An official fumigation permit is required for fumigation with biocidal products or pesticides.
A fumigation permit is required for fumigation with biocidal products or pesticides in accordance with Section 2 (5a) of the Ordinance on Protection against Hazardous Substances (Gef-StoffV). The permit must be applied for before fumigation is carried out for the first time.
A permit is not required if there is no risk to humans or the environment due to the small amount of active substance released. The relevant technical regulations for hazardous substances must be observed.
