The significance of the Land Register to contaminated sites

The Cantons operate a Land Register in which all identified contaminated sites are recorded. It is accessible to the public and an important element for an initial orientation on any pollution of a piece of land. The Land Register provides support to the authorities for the identification and prevention of threats to public property. When acquiring real estate it is risky to rely on the land register alone because the register of contaminated sites makes no claim as to completeness.
