Recognition and disclosure as an expert or technical expert in accordance with the Federal Soil Protection Act

Service Description

The Act on the Protection against Harmful Soil Changes and the Remediation of Contaminated Sites provides for the involvement of experts at several points. In order to be recognized as an expert in the field of soil protection, you must meet the following requirements:

1. demonstrate the necessary expertise (qualified training, practical experience, further training)

2. availability of technical equipment (does not have to be owned, access can be proven by concluded contracts)

3. reliability and personal integrity (evidence and declarations of personal, economic and organizational independence)

Recognized experts or experts are recognized and active in six different subject areas:

1. areal and site-specific survey/historical investigation

2. risk assessment for the soil-water impact pathway

3. risk assessment for the soil-plant impact pathway, precautions to limit the input of substances into the soil and during the application and introduction of materials

4. risk assessment for the soil-human impact pathway 5. remediation

6. hazard identification, assessment and prevention of harmful soil changes due to soil erosion by water

Once the recognition authority has checked all the requirements and your professional suitability/expertise has been established, you will be recognized and notified by decision and with a certificate of recognition.

The contact details of the recognized and notified experts are published in standardized directories. If you already have a public appointment in accordance with the Trade Regulation Act in the requested field and have completed suitable further training, you also provide proof of the necessary expertise for recognition in accordance with the Federal Soil Protection Act and investigation bodies for soil protection and contaminated sites. This means that there are some experts who, in addition to their public appointment under the Trade, Commerce and Industry Regulation Act, are also recognized under the Federal Soil Protection Act. Experts whose expertise, reliability and technical equipment have been checked in another federal state in accordance with comparable requirements are also recognized as experts under the Federal Soil Protection Act. A new examination is not required.
