Obligations of the holder

The old wood groups intended for recycling in the wood based panel industry are § 4 (1) be collected separately at the demolition or to undergo a subsequent treatment.

(2) for storage and transport, the old wood of other old wood intended for recycling in the wood based panel industry is to keep separately.

(3) a mixture of old wood, which is to be recycled in the wood based industry, is allowed, when 1 for each individual waste already exists a valid proof of the assessment or 2. waste has been proven to a treatment, in which it comes to a pollutant discharge activity with regard to those parameters, which exceeded the limits of input has been detected or where there is the reasonable suspicion such crossing , so that the limits are not respected by the mixing.

A mere reduction or drying (Assembly) results in any pollutant discharge activity in the sense of no. 2.

Input control

§ 5 (1) the owner of a plant for the production of wood-based materials must ensure through an input control to accept only the types of waste that are covered by the permit for the installation. He must determine the mass of each type of waste.

(2) the inspection consists of 1 a Visual inspection of the conformity of the delivered waste with waste information or, if present; identified with the proof of the assessment

2. a review of relevant documents, in particular the waste information or, if available, of assessment evidence, and 3. a annex 2 Chapter 2.8 performs identity checks, unless the evaluation evidence is not created by the owner of the plant for the production of wood-based materials. If the identity of the waste is not specified, the facility owner must reject the delivery of waste and submit the results of the identity control holder of the waste.

Recycling in the wood based panel industry

Section 6 (1) has old wood, which is to be recycled in the wood based panel industry, to comply with the requirements set out in annex 1 and 2.

(2) the owner of a plant for producing wood material waste wood may lead to recycling if there is a valid proof of assessment in accordance with Annex 2. The producers of the waste, the waste collector or the holder of the plant for producing wood material can create a certificate of assessment. These people can use an external authorised expert or specialist institution to do so. The drawing up of the assessment document requires compliance with a quality assurance system in accordance with the State of the art. Assessment evidence must meet the requirements of annex 2 Chapter 2.7. Any change of the origins of waste including the input materials or process, which affects the quality of the waste, a new proof of the assessment must be created.

(3) if created by the producer or collector of old wood, which should be used in wood material manufacturing equipment, no evidence of assessment in accordance with Annex 2 Chapter 2.7, a waste information must be forwarded to the holder of the plant for producing wood material by the holder. A waste information can create the waste producer or the waste collector. These people can use to create a waste information of an external authorised expert or specialist institution.

A waste information no later than five years from the first date of delivery is valid. Whenever the creation of waste including the input materials or process, have the impact on the quality of the waste can, is a new one to create waste information.

(4) Furthermore must record the owner of a plant for producing wood material: 1 the basic procedure for the inspection, 2. the results of the inspection, in particular the results of identity checks in accordance with Annex 2 Chapter 2.8, 3. false declarations, specifying the waste information or if available assessment detection, concerned waste and waste delivery 4. the results of controls within the framework of the external audit according to annex 2 Chapter 2.9.

Recycling ban

Section 7 (1) old wood, which is equipped with halogen organic coatings, should be recycled not an in the wood based panel industry without prior removal of the coating.

(2) old wood, that has the relevant hazard properties according to waste directory regulation due to a chemical treatment of wood or that has been treated or such contamination due to its original usage purpose suggests with particularly hazardous substances is to gather separately from the groups appropriate according to Appendix 1 and 2 for recycling to keep separately and should be recycled not an in the wood based panel industry.

End of waste for recycling wood

Recycling wood products must meet the requirements of annex 3 § 8 (1). Recycling wood loses with the Declaration on the basis of submission of proof of valid assessment to the Federal Minister of agriculture and forestry, environment and water management the waste property for the intended use (annex 3, Chapter 1.4). The end of waste in the form of a booking in a product bearing must be documented in the records in accordance with AbfallbilanzV. For recycling wood products, our own product warehouse as a relevant part of the installation must be measured in the master data. The waste producer or the waste collector can create a certificate of assessment. These people can use for establishing proof of assessment of an external authorised specialist or technical Institute. The drawing up of the assessment document requires compliance with a quality assurance system in accordance with the State of the art. Assessment evidence must meet the requirements of annex 3, Chapter 2.7. Any change of the origins of recycled wood product including input materials, or of the process, which affects the quality of the recycled wood product, a new proof of the assessment must be created.

(2) section 1 applies only to types of waste in annex 1.
