Umweltmanagementbeauftragter fuer Ihr Unternehmen - externe Besetzung der Stelle des Betriebsbeauftragten durch die Umweltmanager von hpm.

Appointment of an officer

Our solution - We provide your external company officer

Legal requirements and approvals can oblige companies to employ one or more company officer. The qualification and release of their own employees required for this poses challenges for every company, as their own employees are only available to a limited extent. Hpm takes over these tasks for you, so that your employees can concentrate on their core business.


The legal basis for the appointment and requirements for a waste management officer is provided by the Waste Representative Ordinance  (Abfallbeauftragtenverordnung - AbfBeauftrV). Section 2 describes the requirements for the waste management officer. In particular, reliability (§ 8) and expertise (§ 9) are mentioned here. These criteria can also be found in § 60 of the Circular Economy Act, which regulates the tasks of the company waste management officer, as well as in § 55 of the Federal Immission Control Act. The enforcement aid for the disposal of waste from facilities of the health service of the Federal/State Waste Committee (LAGA) formulates the necessity to carefully select the company waste management officer.


The appointment of an individual as a competent person, in the sense of the transfer of business-related duties, must be made in writing. Our services enable us to free you from the burden of your daily work. We would be happy to help you with implementing this in a legally compliant manner and handling all the duties to be carried out by a representative.
