Background information

A company or other operator undertaking experimental activities has the obligation to submit a notification of the activity at least 30 days before the activity begins. The notification must be submitted to the authority that also grants the permits related to the activity. Experimental activities are often related to the preparation of an investment in environmental protection or testing its technical implementation. It may be, for example, use of new replacement chemicals or use of waste as a raw material.

The notification must state the nature of the experimental activity, how long it will take, what raw materials will be used, what kind of emissions may be generated, what measurement methods these will require and what the impact of the experimental activities will be on the environment. The notifier must also inform the authority of the planned environmental protection measures.

If the experimental activity may cause pollution of a water body or the unreasonable stress referred to in the Act on Neighbour Relationships, an environmental permit must be applied for the activity.
