Immission Control Permits

Environmental protection is declared as a general state goal in the German constitution (Grundgesetz). In general, all buildings may not contravene these protection goals. There are a number of different laws and regulations protecting the environment.

Most important for large industrial facilities is the immission control permit, which is required prior to construction in order to prove that facilities and projects comply with the requirements of environmental law and other regulations aimed at protecting the common good. Facilities and projects subject to this approval procedure are:

  • Emitting industrial plants
  • Waste management plants
  • Nuclear (power) plants
  • Highways and railroad tracks
  • Airports
  • Navigable waterways
  • Plants subject to the law on genetic engineering
