Annual waste report for several sites

Service description

This service is available to all organisations and their registered users. If an inspectorate is responsible for a site, only the users of the inspectorate can use the service. The annual waste report must be recorded for the waste categories (nk) and (ak).

When must an annual waste report be submitted?

From the 2022 reporting period onwards, in addition to waste not subject to control (nk), other waste subject to regulatory controls without mandatory accompanying documentation (ak) must be recorded with this service in the DETEC eGovernment portal instead of, as previously, in veva-online.

All sites that meet the following criteria are obliged to submit an annual waste report:

  • All waste disposal facilities as well as material extraction sites to be refilled or recultivated that accept waste.

What data needs to be recorded?

The corresponding reports from the waste disposal facilities include the waste received and forwarded. When forwarding other waste subject to regulatory controls without mandatory accompanying documentation (ak), you have to enter the company number. For waste not subject to regulatory controls (nk), this is optional. The company number entered must be a waste disposal facility. 
Products may be recorded voluntarily or according to cantonal directives (see Figure 5 in Reporting according to the ADWO (PDF, 1 MB, 28.10.2019, in German) ( .

Hazardous waste [S] and waste subject to regulatory controls with mandatory accompanying documentation [akb] are still recorded via veva-online (VeVA processes) until further notice.
