When should I do a Klic request?

You should do a Klic request when you are going to excavate mechanically. This is required by law (WION law) and applies to companies and consumers. It does not matter how deep you will dig. By doing a Klic request, you can contribute to the prevention of excavation damage and dangerous situations. In addition, you will contribute to the security of the excavator.

By requesting a Klic report, you contribute to the prevention of excavation damage and dangerous situations in the environment. In addition, you contribute to the safety of the digger. Therefore, start the application for the Klic-report now

I want to print out the Klic request, can I?

Previously, you received a separate link upon delivery to display the Klic report in PDF and print it out if desired. This is no longer possible since the beginning of 2021. Now the 'Kadaster' no longer sends the overview drawing in the PDF along with the Klic report. The only thing you could print out (but is not mandatory) are the letters from the network operators involved. In addition, as of April 1, 2021, it is mandatory to be able to view the Klic request completely digitally at the excavation site with a viewer such as the Klic App. A printed version or a digital PDF is therefore also no longer sufficient. Furthermore, we would like to point out that by using the Klic App you comply with legal obligations and save printing costs. The app also offers functionalities that ensure easier and more efficient use of the Klic report during the excavation process. Read hore more about the Klic App.

What is the WION law and what is the purpose of this law?

The WION, also known as excavators regulation, was established on July 1st, 2008. Since October 1st, 2008 excavators are required to do a Klic request when excavating mechanically. The Radiocommunications Agency, part of the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, oversees the enforcement of this law. The purpose of the WION is to prevent any danger or economic harm which is caused by damage to underground cables or pipes (water, electricity and gas lines, telephone lines and oil and gas pipelines). Read here more about the WIBON. 
It is also good to know that as of April 1, 2021, it is mandatory to be able to view the Klic request completely digitally at the excavation site with a Klic viewer such as the Klic App. A printed version or a digital PDF is therefore not sufficient. So by working with the Klic App you, as a ground mover, comply with the WIBON. Start the application of the Klic report here.

What is the meaning of KLIC-WIN?

The excavation industry took the initiative for KLIC-WIN. This program will modernize the exchange of cable and pipeline information according to the WION and enables systems and processes to comply to the European INSPIRE regulation. In this way, the excavation industry and the Land Registry prepares itself for the future. The name KLIC-WIN is a combination of the WION (the Dutch Act Information Exchange Underground Networks) and INSPIRE (European Directive Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community).

What are the guidelines for a careful excavation process?

The knowledge platform CROW has rolled out a guideline for careful excavation with the publication 'To prevent damage to cables and pipes'. The publication connects legislation and practice and covers the entire process of a project. For more information or to order the publication, click here (Dutch content).

The Radiocommunications Agency has developed a 'Shed Map'. When a Klic request has been done, the applicant receives plot information. The Shed Map (Dutch content) shows the individual components of the plot information, such as delivery information, location information, detailed maps, letters of net operators, contact details and drawings of house connections.

Am I obliged to have Klic data available at the excavation site and why so?

You are legally obliged to have the Klic data available on site during the excavation work. For example, when excavation damage occurs, the (sub)contractor must be able to contact the correct net operator. The Radiocommunications Agency checks for the presence of Klic data on site. If you do not meet this legal obligation, a penalty may be imposed. When you apply for a Klic request at Klic App, you will have these data available in this Klic viewer, which is on your smartphone or tablet with the Klic App. In this way you will meet legal obligations.

Is digital availability of data at the excavation site legally sufficient?

Article 2 of the WION Law states the following:

1. The client shall ensure that the excavation work which he has assigned can be carried out in a careful manner.
2. The excavator carries out the excavation work in a careful manner.
3. Pursuant to Article 2 the excavator at least ensures that:
     a. a Klic request has been done before the start of the excavation,
     b. research has been conducted into the precise location of parts of nets on the excavation site, and
     c. the excavation site, the from Service received field information is available.

If you have a tablet or smartphone with the Klic data in the Klic App present on excavation site, you will meet Article 2 paragraph 3c. In this case you do not need to have paper prints with you.

What is the maximum size of the Klic request area?

For an area of 500 x 500 m or less, one Klic request is sufficient. For larger areas, you will have to do multiple Klic requests.

To top

What is the validity of a Klic request?

After doing a Klic request, it remains valid for 20 working days. You should start with the excavation within these 20 days. The cable and pipeline information you received, can be used as long as the soil is open, or as long as it can be demonstrated that nothing has changed in the subsurface. If you have not started to excavate within 20 working days after submitting the Klic request, you should do a new one. Therefore, start applying for a Klic report as soon as you want to start excavation work.

If you are present every day and have control over the excavation site (for example because the excavation site is closed off with a fence), you may continue to work with the same Klic report. If in any doubt, we advise you to contact the Rijksinspectie Digitale Infrastructuur (RDI, formerly known as Agentschap Telecom).
