Keep registers and records of the fate of waste Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Hazardous waste

If you want to dispose of hazardous waste, you must keep a register or certain proof of its whereabouts.

The register or the evidence to be kept documents the disposal processes of the hazardous waste. The obligation to keep the register applies to producers, owners, collectors, carriers, dealers and brokers as well as all disposal companies of hazardous waste.

The obligation to provide evidence applies to the same group of persons with the exception of dealers and brokers of hazardous waste.

Non-hazardous waste

In individual cases, the competent authority may order that registers or evidence of the whereabouts of non-hazardous waste must also be kept.

In any case, waste disposal companies must also keep a register of the disposal of non-hazardous waste.

Form of verification

The registers and supporting documents must be kept in electronic form; only in the case of the keeping of registers on the disposal of non-hazardous waste is the electronic form exempted.


These obligations do not apply to private households.
