Immission control; notification of the appointment of an immission control officer and/or hazardous incident officer

If you need to appoint a new immission control and/or hazardous incident officer for your company or operating area, or if there are changes in their area of responsibility, you must report this to the responsible immission control authority.



Your company is required or ordered by the authorities to appoint one or more immission control and/or hazardous incident officers in accordance with Sections 53 to 58d BImSchG.


As the operator, you must immediately notify the competent authority in writing or by email of the appointment of immission control officers and hazardous incident officers as well as the designation of their tasks and changes in their area of responsibility or their dismissal.

If the competent authority has any queries after receiving the notification or requires further evidence, it will contact you.


Orders or changes to the area of responsibility must be reported immediately.

Required documents

  • certificate of competence

  • Proof of reliability

  • If necessary, further evidence must be submitted in the original or as a copy at the request of the competent authority


  • None


The acceptance of the merely informative notification by the competent authority cannot be contested.

An action for annulment pursuant to Section 42 (1) of the German Code of Administrative Court Procedure (VwGO) would be admissible against an official request for notification. In this case, the plant operator is entitled to challenge the decision in accordance with Section 42 (2) VwGO.
