The ordinance on the competence of the administrative authorities of war victims 'care for beneficiaries abroad (Auslands Kompetenzverordnung - AuslZustV) is a statutory ordinance of the Federal Minister for Labor and Social Affairs based on Section 3 (5) of the Act on the Administrative Procedure for War Victims' Care . It regulates the local jurisdiction of the administrative authorities in the implementation of the Federal Supply Act (BVG) for persons who have their domicile or habitual abode outside the scope of the Basic Law .

The responsibility for the implementation of the BVG with regard to beneficiaries resident abroad is in § 1 AuslZustV distributed to the federal states according to their country of origin, for example the care of war victims in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden is carried out by the Schleswig pension office. As a result, the required specialist knowledge is concentrated in a few positions. In 2014, 2,437 injured people and 2,437 survivors lived abroad.

According to the contract of May 29, 1962 between the Federal Republic of Germany and the Spanish state on war victims' pensions, the Karlsruhe pension office is also responsible if the applicant or beneficiary is not domiciled or habitually resident in Spain.
