Connecting object

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The object of reference (also: object of reference ) describes in German international private law an element of a conflict of law rule .


By way of connection , the connection is established between the object of connection and the moment or point of connection and thus the legal consequence ( factual standard ).

Thus, Article 25 (1 ) EGBGB in the version valid until August 17, 2015 regulated the applicable law for the subject matter of "legal succession due to death". This “was subject” ( connection ) “to the law of the state to which the testator belonged at the time of his death” ( connection moment ). If an Austrian citizen died in Germany, the legal consequences arose from the Austrian inheritance law .

The subsumption of a certain life issue under a connecting object is methodically referred to as a qualification .
