Appoint immission protection officers
Operators of certain installations requiring approval must, in accordance with the Federal Immission Protection Act, appoint one or more plant representatives for immission protection (immission protection officers), provided that this is necessary with regard to the nature or size of the installations due to the emissions emitted from the installations, technical problems of emission limitation or the suitability of the products to cause harmful environmental effects from air pollution, noise or vibration when used as intended, required. The facilities in need of approval for which the operator has to appoint an immission protection officer are the ones covered by Annex I to the Ordinance on Immission Protection and Incident Officers. The operator shall immediately notify the appointment of the immission protection officer and the designation of his duties, as well as changes in his remit and his dismissal, to the competent authority.
