New Mantelverordnung: introduction of EBV and adaptation of BBodSchV, DepV and GewAbfV

Posted on 04 October 2022

In July 2021, the legislature published the new Mantelverordnung (“Regulation on the Introduction of a Substitute Construction Materials Regulation, on the Revision of the Federal Soil Protection and Contaminated Sites Regulation and on the Amendment of the Landfill Ordinance and the Commercial Waste Ordinance”).

Although the regulations of the Mantelverordnung will only come into force on 01 August 2023, the new requirements may already have to be taken into account in current tenders and in construction projects whose execution begins before this date. Among other things, the scope of testing (parameters) and testing methods will be changed, so that old analysis results (e.g. according to LAGA M20) will only be comparable to a limited extent.

Classification of mineral waste

Processing of crushed concrete

Substitute Construction Materials Ordinance (EBV)

The most important item is the introduction of the Substitute Building Materials Ordinance (EBV), which for the first time sets out nationwide and legally binding requirements for the production and use of mineral substitute building materials (including recycled building materials from construction and demolition waste, soil and dredged material, gravel for railway tracks). The EBV thus replaces, among others, the LAGA M20 leaflet.
