Please note the note on the applicable legal version.

The German Federal Central Register Act regulates the management of the Federal Central Register and the Education Register and describes the procedure for obtaining information on the content (e.g. certificate of good conduct ).

The Federal Central Register Act is a special act on the Federal Data Protection Act , so that its regulations only apply subsidiary . Nevertheless, the BZRG also had to be revised after the census ruling by the Federal Constitutional Court , as this ruling made considerable demands on data processing .

With the establishment of the Federal Office of Justice , the Federal Central Register was transferred from the area of responsibility of the Attorney General to the Federal Office.
