Indirect entry, approval of expert bodies in accordance with the Indirect Entry Order Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Wastewater is produced by domestic, commercial, agricultural and other use of water in almost all economic and living sectors. Waste water from the commercial sector is pre-treated if required according to the area of origin and is fed to the municipal sewage treatment plants for further treatment via the public sewerage system (indirect discharger). The treated waste water is then discharged into a surface water. In the areas of waste water origin, which provide for appropriate small-scale and requirements and where discharge requires only a notification instead of a permit, discharges shall be monitored by: expert bodies in accordance with the Indirect Entry-Ineator Ordinance. This is the case, for example, with separator plants for the treatment of mineral oil-containing wastewater, in the case of amalgam separators in dental practices or chemical cleaning plants. Expert bodies may act according to the extent of their authorisation. Approvals may be limited to certain test areas or limited in time. Authorisations of other Länder and other Member States of the European Union, a Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area or Switzerland shall be deemed to be authorised if their equivalence is established by the licensing authority and published in the State Gazette for the Land of Hessen.

The fact sheet principles for the recognition of expert bodies in accordance with Section 4 of the Indirect Ladder Ordinance, as of February 2001, is decisive. The leaflet can be found on the HLUG website under Wasser_Abwasser_Regelungen.
