Application for permission according to § 15 Biosubstances Ordinance

Service Description

Biological agents of risk groups 3 and 4 are highly pathogenic pathogens. For this reason, the BioStoffV provides for a permit procedure prior to the commencement of activities of protection levels 3 and 4 in laboratories, in laboratory animal husbandry and in biotechnology, and of protection level 4 in special isolation stations. Only when the competent authority has granted the employer this permission may the corresponding activities be carried out.

Note: Provided that activities requiring a permit under the old Ordinance were notified before the BioStoffV of 15.03.2013 came into force and the structural, technical and organizational conditions on which the notification was based were not significantly changed after 30 September 2021, no permit is required under Section 15 (1) BioStoffV.
