1.

a valid proof of assessment is already available for each individual waste; or

2.

the waste has been shown to be treated as a source of pollutant decontamination with regard to the parameters in respect of which the input limit values have been exceeded or where the reason for the justification is that There is a suspicion of such an exceedation, so that the limits are not complied with by mixing.

A mere comminution or drying (packaging) does not result in any pollutant deframing in the sense of the Z 2.

Input Control

§ 5. (1) The holder of an installation for the production of wood-based materials shall ensure, by means of an input control, that only types of waste which are covered by the approval of the plant are accepted. It must determine the mass of the particular type of waste.

(2) The entry control shall consist of:

a visual check in which the conformity of the delivered waste with the waste information or, where available, must be determined with the assessment certificate;

2.

a review of the relevant documents, in particular the waste information or, where available, the proof of assessment; and

The waste producer, the waste collector or the owner of the plant for the production of wood material can draw up a certificate of assessment. These persons can use an external authorized subject or specialist institution. The prerequisite for the preparation of the assessment certificate is compliance with a quality assurance system according to the state of the art. Proof of assessment must be provided by the Annex 2 Chapter 2.7. Any change in the origin of the waste, including input materials or the process, which has an impact on the quality of the waste, must be accompanied by a new proof of assessment.

(3) Where the producer or collector of waste wood, which is to be used in the production of wood-based materials, does not provide proof of assessment in accordance with Annex 2 In Chapter 2.7, waste information must be provided to the owner of the plant for the production of wood materials by the waste owner. Waste information can be produced by the waste producer or by the waste collector. These persons may use an external authorized subject or institution for the preparation of waste information. The owner of the plant for wood-based material production must check this waste information. Waste information shall contain the following information:

(2) Altholz, which, on the basis of a chemical treatment of wood, has properties relevant to the hazard of the waste in accordance with the Regulation on waste products or which has been treated with particularly dangerous substances, or which has been treated as a result of its original use, such pollution may be presumed by the Annex 1 and 2 to be separately collected for recycling appropriate fractions, to be kept separate and not to be recycled in the wood-based materials industry.

Waste for recycled wood

§ 8. (1) recycled wood products must meet the requirements of Annex 3 . With the declaration on the basis of the transmission of a valid assessment certificate to the Federal Minister for Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management, recycled wood loses the waste property for the intended use ( Annex 3 Chapter 1.4). In the records according to the waste balance sheet, the end of the waste property is to be documented in the form of a reservation in a product warehouse. For recycled wood products, a separate product warehouse has to be recorded as a relevant asset part in the master data. The waste producer or the waste collector may draw up a certificate of assessment. These persons may use an external authorized person or specialist institution to prepare the assessment certificate.
