Section 5 Classification Of Waters in Exposure Classes

The competent authority shall, on the basis of the likelihood of an entry of plant protection products (risk factor), divide the waters in the area referred to in Appendix 1 to an exposure class at all times or periodically water-carrying waters. The division into one of the exposure classes shall be carried out on the basis of the method of calculation described in Annex 3, Part A, and the classification of exposure classes laid down in Annex 3, Part B. The competent authority shall communicate the exposure class at the latest by 1. October 2015 to the authorized person and owner of the areas adjacent to the respective waters. In this case, the exposure class 1 denotes the class with the lowest probability of an entry, the exposure class 4 denotes the class with the highest probability of an entry. (2) The person entitled to dispose of or the owner of an entry to a Water in the area adjacent to the area referred to in Appendix 1 may apply to the competent authority, by way of derogation from the division of the body of water into an exposure class within the meaning of paragraph 1, to another class of exposure if there is reason to believe that the division into a particular exposure class has been carried out on the basis of incorrect factual findings or incorrect calculation, or one of the measures referred to in Appendix 4 has been carried out.

Appendix 3 (to § 5 (1), § 6)
Calculation of the risk factor and classification in exposure classes for waters in the Old Country

(Fundstelle: BAnz AT 16.03.2015 V2)
Part A
The reference value shall be the nationally applicable drift value for a plant protection product with an indication of application which, when 90% of the anti-drift technique is used, prescribates a distance to waters of 20 m (notice of The drift values used in the authorisation of plant protection products of 8 May 2000, BAnz. 9878). The reference value shall be calculated from the table value for the one-off use of a plant protection product in fruit growing at late stages of development at a distance of 20 m multiplied by a factor of 0.1 (90% reduction), and has two Decimal places rounded up the amount 0 ,11.The drift value currently applicable to the body of water shall be calculated according to the following formula:
y = 60,36 * (x-1, 75) -1.2243 for x < 15y = 212,13 * (x-1, 75) -1.7583 for x ≥ 15
with y: Drift corner value to be used
x: Distance between the upper edge of the embankment and the middle of the first tree row in m
(at tree rows perpendicular to the water between the upper edge of the embankment and the middle of the first tree)

The risk factor is calculated as the quotient of the current drift value and the reference value to be applied to the body of water. The following risk factors have been calculated for the determination of the exposure class: Distance Böschungsupper edge-center first tree row risk factor
3.50 m (periodically water-leading waters only) 277
5.00 m 130
6.00 m 93
7,00 m 72
8.00 m 58
9,00 m 49
10,00 m 41
15,00 m 21
20.00 m 12
20.00 m with 90% drift-reducing technology (reference) 1


Part B
The waters shall be placed in one of the following four exposure classes: Exposure class risk factor
1 0 to 1
2 > 1 to 30
3 > 30 to 65
4 > 65
