Construction site pre-announcement Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Construction sites of a certain size must be notified in writing (pre-announced) to the competent authority at least 2 weeks before they are set up.

For every construction site where

  • the estimated duration of the work is more than 30 working days and during which more than 20 employees work at the same time, or
  • the scope of the work is expected to exceed 500 person-days,

a prior notice containing at least the information set out in Annex I shall be sent to the competent authority no later than two weeks before the construction site is set up. The advance notice must be displayed visibly on the construction site and adapted in the event of significant changes.

Mandatory information according to Annex I BaustellV:

  • location of the construction site,
  • name and address of the client,
  • type of construction project,
  • name and address of the third party responsible in place of the client,
  • the name and address of the coordinator,
  • the expected start and duration of the work,
  • the expected maximum number of employees on the construction site,
  • the number of employers and contractors without employees who are likely to work on the site,
  • Indication of the employers and entrepreneurs without employees already selected.

Preconditions

At the latest two weeks before the installation of a construction site where

  • the estimated duration of the work is more than 30 working days and during which more than 20 employees work at the same time, or
  • the scope of the work is expected to exceed 500 person-days.

Hints

Rule of thumb: Advance notice is usually required if the construction activities require a deployment of at least 4 workers over a period of more than 6 months.

§ 7 para. 1 no. 1 BaustellV: An administrative offence is acted by anyone who intentionally or negligently does not provide the competent authority with prior notice, not correctly, not completely or not in time.
