  • Power supply facilities (e.g. transformer stations)
  • Telecommunication and broadcasting transmitters
  • Facilities with special risk of corrosion, fire and explosion (refineries, depots, etc.)

  • Operational areas in exceptional cases (occupational safety and fire protection, object safety).

Exemption permits for the use of herbicides on non-crop land areas in home gardens and allotments are not granted.
