As a producer of waste, you have to abide by the Specialized Waste Management Company Ordinance (Entsorgungsfachbetriebsverordnung). That means you carry full responsibility for proper disposal of all your pollutants and waste. Once certified as a specialized waste management company, you can prove to your customers that you have all the necessary approvals – from transport permits to storage licenses, right up to the appropriate waste disposal certificates. Independent waste management companies and operating units are also eligible for certification. Just ask our experts.
One of the prerequisites for accreditation is that you enter a monitoring agreement with a technical surveillance organization. Optionally, you can also purchase a seal of quality from an accredited waste disposal association. However, this means you would have to pay regular membership fees. Wouldn't it be better to go with a one-stop shop? With certification from TÜV Rheinland, you only have to pay for the inspection and surveillance costs.
