Derogation from the permit requirement for activities undertaken on an experimental basis

A permit is not required for a short-term activity undertaken on an experimental basis when the purpose is to test an emerging technique, raw material or fuel, a manufacturing or incineration method or treatment equipment, or to treat waste at an installation or on a professional basis to investigate the impact, feasibility or other corresponding feature of such an activity (Environmantal protection act section 31).
A written notification of an activity undertaken on an experimental basis, referred to in section 31, shall be submitted to the competent environmental permit authority (the municipal environmental protection authority or the state environmental permit authority) at the latest 30 days before the start of the activity.
However, an environmental permit is nonetheless required if the activity may cause the consequences referred to in section 27, subsection 2 of the environmental protection act.
