General information

Before conducting basic inspections of combustion systems (furnaces) and cogeneration plants, professional enterprises and individuals must obtain a permit in the form of an official inspection licensing number (Prüfnummer). This permit is issued by the Vienna City Administration.

To receive such a licensing number you need to submit a valid certificate of competence, or a certificate of appointment issued in another Austrian federal province.

The licensing number consists of a country code and a sequential number. The Vienna City Administration publishes an online list of all licensed inspectors and inspection enterprises in electronic form.
