Examination centres for treatment plants for waste wood Announcement

Operators of treatment plants for the treatment of waste wood for the production of wood-based materials are obliged to carry out quarterly investigations into pollutant contents of waste wood. These investigations shall be carried out by independent inspection bodies designated by a central body. The investigations must be carried out in accordance with the Waste Wood Ordinance (AltholzV).

The examination bodies are determined on request after a review, which is addressed in accordance with Sections 6 and Annex II to Section 3 paragraph 1 of the Waste Wood Ordinance (AltholzV) and the "Specialist Module Abfal". The technical module regulates the requirements for the quality of examination bodies within the framework of the Circular Economy Act (KrWG) and the regulations based on them. The technical module lays down personnel, operational and equipment requirements. The provision is also referred to as 'notification'.

The provision obliges the investigating body, among other things, to participate annually in the nationwide ring tests.
