Anyone who carries out an activity involving pathogens must notify the competent authority immediately of any significant change in the nature of the rooms and facilities, the disposal measures and the type and scope of the activity.

The notification of change is made via the online procedure at the government responsible for the place of business. If you wish to submit the notification in paper form, please contact the government responsible.


The notification of change must be made immediately, i.e. without culpable delay.
