9. The Nature Conservation Agency, the State Forest Service, and the Ministry of Agriculture (hereinafter each - the responsible institution) shall be responsible for the establishment of a micro-reserve according to its competence and in accordance with an opinion of a certified expert in the relevant field of conservation of species and biotopes (hereinafter - the expert):

11. A buffer zone which is up to 30 metres wide may be determined for micro-reserves that have been established in order to conserve springs and spring fens, deciduous swamp forests, alluvial banks, and flood-plain forests rich in minerals, as well as other forest biotopes with an increased level of humidity.

III. Procedures for Establishing Micro-reserves

12. A proposal regarding establishment of a micro-reserve may be submitted to the responsible institution by any person in writing by filling in the first part of the questionnaire for the application and inventory of a micro-reserve of specially protected species and biotope (Annex 4) to which the foreseeable territory of the micro-reserve represented in graphic or digital form in the scale of 1:5000 or 1:10 000 is attached. Upon submitting the first part of the questionnaire for the application and inventory of a micro-reserve of specially protected species and biotope, the person may attach the second part of the questionnaire for the application and inventory of a micro-reserve of specially protected species and biotope prepared by an expert which shall include the information prepared regarding the territory of the planned micro-reserve.

13. The responsible institution shall check whether the territory of the planned micro-reserve does not overlap with an already existing territory of a micro-reserve or a specially protected nature territory the provisions for conservation and use of which ensure conservation of the relevant species or biotope (species or biotope for which the micro-reserve is planned). The responsible institution shall evaluate the permitted use of land provided for in the spatial plan or local plan of the local government in the potential territory of the micro-reserve. If the territories overlap, the expert who evaluates the need for the planned micro-reserve shall be informed thereof.

14. If an expert opinion is not attached to the proposal regarding establishment of a micro-reserve, the responsible institution shall, within 15 working days after receiving a proposal for establishment of a micro-reserve, request an opinion from the expert in the relevant group of biotopes, species, or group of species regarding the species and biotopes existing in the territory of the planned micro-reserve, entering into a mutual agreement. The responsible institution shall attract an expert for preparation of the opinion and ensure him or her with the information at its disposal and cartographic reference regarding the territory referred to in the proposal regarding establishment of a micro-reserve.

15. The expert shall perform an on-site check and submit an opinion to the responsible institution the content of which conforms to the laws and regulations in the field of conservation of species and biotopes, as well as a digital cartographic scheme of the micro-reserve in the form of vector data (in the form of .gml, .dwg, .dxf, .dgn or .shp files) in the LKS-92-TM coordinate system. The expert shall include the evaluation referred to in Paragraph 13 of this Regulation in the opinion.

16. If the territory of the planned micro-reserve cannot be evaluated due to the biological cycle of the species or biotope:

16.1. the responsible institution shall, in accordance with the procedures laid down in the Administrative Procedure Law, inform the submitter of the proposal for establishment of a micro-reserve regarding extending the time period for taking of a decision to establish a micro-reserve;

16.2. the expert shall perform an on-site check during the active vegetation period or during the breeding period of the corresponding species and provide an opinion within 20 working days.

17. The responsible institution shall, within 15 days after recommendations of an expert or, if necessary, of another specialist which support the establishment of a micro-reserve have been received, send the information at its disposal characterising the micro-reserve to be established to the local government and the land owner or, if none, to the lessee who has acquired the right of lease in accordance with Section 25, Paragraph two of the Law on Completion of the Use of State and Local Government Property Privatisation and Privatisation Certificates (hereinafter - the lessee), and the legal possessor in whose property establishment of the micro-reserve is planned. The local government and the land owner or, if none, the lessee or legal possessor shall, within 30 days from the day of receipt of the notification, provide an opinion to the responsible institution on the proposal for establishment of a micro-reserve (the reasonableness of establishing a micro-reserve, the area occupied, the location). Upon taking a decision to establish a micro-reserve, the responsible institution shall evaluate the opinion of the local government and the land owner or, if none, the lessee or legal possessor and the social and economic interests of significance to the society.

18. If the external borders of a micro-reserve and its buffer zone are determined without surveying border crossing points (the coordinates of border crossing points have been calculated without an on-site surveying), deviations of borders within the limits of accuracy of the scale of the map according to the description of borders and actual borders existing in nature shall be permitted until accurate surveying of the external border of the micro-reserve and its buffer zone.

19. The State Land Service shall, in accordance with the procedures laid down in the laws and regulations, on the basis of a mutual agreement, issue such data of the National Real Estate Cadastre Information System to the Nature Conservation Agency in online mode which are necessary for the establishment and maintenance of a State register of micro-reserves, and also specially protected species, their habitats, and specially protected biotopes.

20. A micro-reserve for the conservation of specially protected bird species shall be established, if there are circumstances appropriate for nesting or mating of a capercaillie corresponding to the requirements of the relevant species around the territory of nests populated at least once during the last five years or mating places of a capercaillie (permanent forest territory conditioned by the natural circumstances in which capercaillies are gathering during the breeding period).
