Permit or licensing procedures governed by the Air-Pollution Control Act are highly complex, involving investigation of all possible environmental-engineering concerns within the scope of the procedure in the interests of both the applicant and the general public. A permit or license as per the Air-Pollution Control Act (BImSchG) is thus a process of consolidation, i.e. it embraces all other required permits, approvals or licenses, etc. under public law (with a few exceptions).
Without professional assistance, this may prove a costly, time-consuming and troublesome business!
Scheduled production targets and commissioning dates may be jeopardized, resulting in major business damage.
When is a permit or licensing procedure needed?
Permits or licenses, for example as per the Federal Air-Pollution Control Act (BImSchG), are mandatory for many municipal and industrial projects. The projects in question are identifi ed in the Annex to the 4th Air-Pollution-Control Ordinance (BImSchV).
