The governor regularly checks original producers of hazardous waste (with the exception of problematic waste) and waste collectors and waste processors.
The competent body also checks the accuracy of the master data entered in the register when doing so.
- Original waste producers
- Waste processors
In general, these rules also apply for traders from EU Member States that have their registered office in Austria or who work in Austria as waste collectors or waste handlers.

Collectors and processors of hazardous waste and processing facilities for hazardous waste are checked at least once every five years. The remaining people are regularly checked at appropriate intervals. There are special regulations for IPPC facilities and Seveso companies.
