Submit collective waste disposal certificate in the privileged procedure

Service Description

As a waste-generating company that produces hazardous waste, you and the companies involved in its disposal must provide evidence of proper disposal, both to each other and to the competent authorities, and keep the necessary verification documents.

As a waste-generating or waste-disposing company, you must provide proof of disposal even before the start of disposal in order to prove the permissibility of the planned type of disposal.

However, if you generate less than 20 tons of hazardous waste per year, you can participate in the collective waste disposal certificate procedure instead. In this case, it is not the waste-generating company that provides proof of disposal, but the company that collects the waste.

The competent authority must generally also confirm the permissibility of disposal before disposal begins in the collective waste disposal certificate procedure.

The obligation to confirm the collective waste disposal certificate does not apply in the so-called privileged procedure. This applies to the following companies:

  • Disposal facilities that are certified as specialized waste management companies or
  • Disposal facilities that belong to a company entered in the EMAS register or
  • Waste management facilities that are exempt from the confirmation requirement upon application by the competent authority.

In the privileged procedure, you can start disposal immediately after sending the collective waste disposal certificate to the competent authority.
