Application for state recognition (notification) as an inspection body (testing laboratories, sampling bodies) of water and waste law monitoring: Application in accordance with the Ordinance on Requirements for the Discharge of Wastewater into Waters (AbwV) and the Landfill Ordinance (DepV)

Anyone who has state recognition may be used as an investigation body within the framework of water and waste law monitoring. You must submit the application to the competent authority in the federal state in which you have your place of business. This also applies if you have several dependent locations throughout Germany. If your state does not offer a notification procedure, you can apply in the state where you intend to act.  The notification granted is valid for the whole of Germany.

If it is an investigating body from another Member State of the European Union that does not have a registered office in Germany, you can apply for notification in the federal state in which you want to operate.
