the National Council No. 541/1991 Coll., provides:
PART THE FIRST
The subject of the edit
This Decree incorporates the relevant provisions of the European Communities ^ 1)
and regulates the further details for the establishment, operation, safeguarding and
disposal facilities for waste disposal in underground spaces (
"the store") as a specific intervention in the Earth's crust ^ 2).
Definition of terms
For the purposes of this Ordinance shall be construed as
and the storage of waste)-underground spaces resulting from the natural effects of or
mining activities, or activities carried out using mining techniques, in
(b)) provisioning storage-the activity giving rise to the waste storage, IE.
the design, construction or reconstruction of the underground space of the appropriate
as the storage of waste, including their prospecting and exploration,
(c) storage-operation activities) when storing wastes in underground
areas on the basis of the operational regulations,
(d) storage-design) ensuring the necessary precautions when temporary
stop the operation of the storage of waste,
e) disposal of storage-make the necessary arrangements to
permanent cessation of operation of the storage of waste.
Storage of waste
(1) to store waste underground legal and natural persons may only
the basis of the obtained permission ^ 3) ^ 4). The repository is expressed
the competent authority of the State administration under a special legal regulation ^ 5).
(2) a precondition for the issuance of the permit is the previous determination of the protected
the territory according to the specific legislation. ^ 6)
(3) to the storage of waste cannot be accepted waste specified in the annex (hereinafter referred to as
"the excluded wastes").
(4) in the storage of the waste may be accepted only waste that fulfils the
requirements laid down by special legislation on waste ^ 6a) persisted
to the landfill the same group to which the repository was classified according to
the results of an integrated assessment of storage ^ 6b). The waste, which could
interact, must be defined in the basic characterisation of the waste
producer and divided into groups according to the mutual compatibility;
each storage group must be separated.

storage of waste,
(d)) to determine the facts needed to an assessment of possible effects of storage
waste bearing minerals, water resources, the environment and other
important public interests,
(e)) when you cancel the search and survey to implement measures in order to
nezmařila mine workings and implementation of further research by neztížilo.
Design and construction of the waste sites
(1) The design, construction or reconstruction of the waste storage
subject to building regulations, ^ 8) where this Ordinance or other legal
^ 9) legislation provides otherwise.
(2) documentation building referred to in paragraph 1 must, in addition to requirements
laid down in other general regulations provide
optimal deployment) surface and underground structures, devices, and
b) safety and health and safety at work,
ensure the mine workings, ventilation, pumping and draining of mine water, protection
against explosions, průvalům, fire and shock hazards, as well as against the průtržím
rocks and gases
(c)) dealing with relations to other sectors and the public interest národohospodářským
protected by specific provisions, ^ 10) not only in terms of direct
the consequences of the planned investment, but also in terms of the consequences
United waste disposal underground.
(3) the safety and health protection at work and the safety of the operation when
establishment of underground storage of waste, including the safety of
technical equipment and fire protection is fully governed by the
special provision. ^ 11)
The operation of the waste sites
(1) the district mining Office in the decision on the authorisation of activities
the conditions for the storage and handling of waste in underground storage, and it
in accordance with the conditions laid down by the competent authorities of the State administration ^ 5)
on the basis of categorization and characteristics of the waste according to the specific
legislation. ^ 12)
(2) the operator shall in particular:
and to dispose of waste as) prepared the operational order, which was
approved by the competent authority of the State administration, ^ 5)
(b) keep records of the quantity), type and origin of the waste is taken to
Save the. ^ 13) within the prescribed mapping documentation ^ 4) indicate the storage location
(c)) to handle the emergency plan to combat the serious traffic accidents and
accidents, ^ 14)
d) in the case that it is possible to make use of the stored waste as a source of secondary
raw materials or energy, to provide a way of storing the waste, which would
neznemožnil its future use,
(e)) to perform a regular sampling of water and vzdušin and according to the results
their analysis to check whether there is adverse change properties
waste and environmental hazards,
(f)) to receive operational measures to remove and correct the
the deficiencies and to create conditions of operation necessary for the care of
human health and the environment,
g) allow control authorities to access the objects, space and equipment, and
on request submit the documentation and to provide truthful and complete
information on facts related to the operation of an underground storage
h) activities related to the operation of underground storage of waste to carry out
through the workers, which was verified by their professional
eligibility, ^ 15)
ch) consistently learn about all their workers with legal and other
the operation of the storage regulations, including safety and waste
health at work, on a regular basis to verify their knowledge of these
regulations and continuously require and monitor compliance therewith.
Work safety and operation
(1) the safety and health protection at work and the safety of operation
underground storage of waste, including the safety of technical
equipment and fire protection are governed by a special law. ^ 11)
