Application for payment of compensation for damage caused to game exposed to radiation


Foodstuffs with a radiocesium content of more than 600 Becquerel per kilogram may not be marketed in Germany and must be destroyed.

If the game you have shot is accordingly contaminated with radiation/radioactivity and may not be marketed, it will be examined on application whether you will be paid compensation for damages.

If the conditions are met, you will be paid a lump sum as compensation for the damage, depending on the game.

You submit your application (main form and annex(es)) for payment of compensation for damage and the above-mentioned evidence by post to your competent Landesstelle. They will forward your application (main form and annex(es)) to the Federal Office of Administration (BVA) after checking it without the required supporting documents.
