Adopted 15.03.1989, according to Dirk Schönberger's Administrative Divisions of the World website. From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:

The arms were granted on August 2, 1974. The arms are a combination of the arms of Austria (white fess) and Baden (red bend), as the largest part of the district was historically either part of Austria or Baden. The eagle is taken from the arms of the Princes of Fürstenberg, who also had several estates in the district, and is also part of the arms of the city of Breisach.
