Heating oil consumer system Display Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

The installation and operation of a fuel oil consumer system must be notified to the competent authority.

To be available:

  • the construction of underground storage facilities (regardless of the quantity of storage),
  • the construction of above-ground storage facilities with more than 1 000 l of fuel oil storage volume ("above ground" is also storage in the basement of a building) and
  • all material changes and the decommissioning of the plant
  • fully completed display form for heating oil systems
  • in case of above-ground storage: floor plan sketch of the location of the container plant as well as the normally necessary collection tank with dimension
  • in the case of underground storage: site plan with location of the tanks and route guidance of the pipelines, including dimensioning


For existing installations for which neither a permit nor a notification confirmation has been received by the competent authority, the notification must be made immediately.
