Modification of a plant requiring approval according to BImSchG Approval for accident-relevant modification


Are you operating a plant that requires approval under immission control law, which is an operating area or is part of an operating area, and are planning to make changes to the plant that are relevant to accidents?

If the change relevant to the incident

  • the appropriate safety distance to neighbouring protected objects is not maintained for the first time,
  • the safety distance that has already been undercut is spatially undercut even further, or
  • a significant increase in risk is triggered

To do this, you must submit an application for a change permit and submit all the necessary documents for the assessment. The application can be made in writing or electronically.

However, approval is not required if and to the extent that the obligation to maintain the appropriate safety distance is already guaranteed at the level of a spatially significant planning or measure by binding specifications.

What are the fees?

The fees vary depending on the amount of time required. However, a minimum of 1500 euros will be charged.

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

There is no deadline.
