Notify construction, significant modification or measures involving a change in the hazard level of installations for handling substances hazardous to water (except heating oil consumer installations and JGS installations)

You must submit your notification of the construction, significant modification or change to the hazard level of an installation subject to mandatory inspection to the competent authority in good time in advance.

The construction of these installations does not have to be notified if

  • a suitability assessment has been applied for in accordance with the Water Resources Act for installations for the storage, filling or handling of substances hazardous to water or
  • installations are the subject of an approval procedure under other legislation, provided that the approval procedure also ensures compliance with the requirements of this Ordinance. In this case, significant changes to the installation that require approval are also not subject to notification.

If you want to submit the advertisement online:

  • You submit the notification via the online service.
  • The water authority will check your documents for completeness and request any missing information or documents.
