1.

The OVAM can designate a site based on soil contamination or potential soil contamination. The designation will be published in an extract in the Belgian Official Gazette.

2.

The Government of Flanders can designate a site based on factors other than soil contamination or potential soil contamination, after recommendations from the OVAM on the soil contamination or potential soil contamination. Upon designation, a potential future use can be added, which will be published in an extract in the Belgian Official Gazette.
