Brokerage transactions (trading and brokering) Approval

Anyone who collects, transports, trades or incinerates non-hazardous waste must notify the competent authority of their activity once before commencement. Since 1 June 2014, this has also applied to so-called economic enterprises (e.B craft businesses). The notification obligation is intended to ensure that all companies carrying out one of the above-mentioned waste-related activities are registered with the relevant competent authority.

Anyone who collects, transports, trades or incinerates hazardous waste generally requires a permit for this. Anyone who already has a waste transport permit or brokerage permit under former waste law can continue to use it as long as the permit is still valid and no significant changes have occurred. Otherwise, permission is required.

Permission may be granted

  • nationwide or for one or more federal states,
  • indefinitely or for a specified period of time,
  • for all types of waste declared hazardous or selected types of waste in accordance with the Waste List Ordinance (AVV).

Exempt from the permit requirement for hazardous waste by law are the public waste disposal authorities and specialist waste disposal companies. Further exceptions to the permit requirement are possible by ordinance or by special law. Such exceptions currently apply to:

  • collectors, carriers, dealers and brokers of hazardous waste operating within the framework of economic enterprises,

collectors and carriers of hazardous waste for recovery which are taken back voluntarily by the manufacturer or distributor or on the basis of a legal regulation,

  • collectors and carriers of dangerous end-of-life vehicles,
  • collectors, carriers, dealers and brokers of dangerous waste batteries,
  • Collectors, carriers, dealers and brokers of dangerous waste electrical and electronic equipment,
  • collectors and carriers of hazardous waste collecting or transporting waste by seagoing vessels, and
  • Collectors and carriers of hazardous waste transporting waste as part of parcel, express and courier services.
