Adopted 27.08.1976, according to Dirk Schönberger's Administrative Divisions of the World website. From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:
The new arms were granted on May 14, 1976. The chief shows the arms of Bavaria, as a large part of the county belongs for a long time to Bavaria. The lower dexter part shows two leaves, taken from the arms of the Frauenchiemsee Convent. These arms are used as a symbol for the Chiemgau area of the county. The lower sinister half shows the lion taken from the arms of the city (...) of Wassenburg.
Literature: Stadler 1964-1971, Linder and Olzog 1996.
