Register an exporter

Service description

To be able to export waste abroad, you must register your company as an exporter, unless you already have a waste disposal facility or a waste generating company.

If you hand off special waste to others (waste generating company) or receive waste for disposal (waste disposal facility), please request a site and company number. In this case, you do not also have to register as an exporter.

Use this service to register your organisation as an exporter only.

What information is required?

The following information is required:

  • Commune responsible
  • Site information (including name and address)
  • Contact person (including their email address and telephone number) 

How do I register as an exporter?

All of the information you provide will be checked by the Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN). Once the information has been confirmed, you will be notified under Notifications. You will be sent an email to let you know you have a new notification.

If your request is approved, you will receive a site number for the exporter you have registered.
