Review of application
In addition to the centralised registration and classification of the applications, incoming application documents are also formally reviewed to identify jurisdiction within DAkkS and the possible involvement of multiple divisions. In the case of applications for so-called sensitive areas, ZAB will clarify whether a public authority entitled to issue authorisations (BeB) will be involved in accordance with Section 4 Accreditation Body Act (AkkStelleG).
