Please note the note on the applicable legal version.

The framework regulations to be observed according to Chapter 1 of the Act related to the civil servant relationship , the legal status of the civil servant , and special groups of civil servants . Chapter 2 lists provisions that apply uniformly and directly, i.e. do not have to be converted into state law. Among other things, the employer's capacity ( § 121 BRRG), the administrative legal process ( § 126 BRRG) in civil servant matters and the legal status of civil servants in the restructuring of corporations are specified.

Separate civil service laws have been passed in the federal and state governments.

Section 126 BRRG contains an urgent special allocation to open administrative legal channels.

With the federalism reform that has been decided , the framework legislation according to Art. 75 GG is no longer applicable . While the federal government has the legal competence for its federal civil servants, the states receive the legal authority for their federal civil servants. The Civil Service Framework Act was replaced by the Civil Service Status Act with effect from April 1, 2009 . On June 19, 2008, the Civil Service Status Act was promulgated. Thereafter, Chapter II (§§ 121-133f BRRG) and § 135 BRRG remain in effect for the period after April 1, 2009 .
