Service background and legislation

Operators undertaking activities that affect the environment have the obligation to register their activities in the environmental protection information system. The activity can begin when the municipal environmental authority has registered the activity, or a period of 30 or 60 days have passed since the notification was submitted.

The obligation to register also applies to dry cleaners and activities that use organic solvents, as well as to concrete batching plants and concrete product plants. At the time of registration, the authority ensures that the operator complies with the relevant environmental protection requirements.
