Information from the debtors' register until 31.12.2012

Service Description

The purpose of the debtors' register is to protect bona fide business transactions from uncreditworthy debtors.

Due to a new legal regulation, the maintenance of the debtors' register has been fundamentally reformed and modernized as of 2013. As a result, debtors' registers will be maintained in parallel under the old and new laws for a transitional period of several years.

Since January 1, 2013

  • Debtors' registers under the previous law continue to be maintained at the enforcement courts of the district courts. These debtors' lists will continue to exist until all existing entries have been deleted. New entries are only made in old proceedings that have not yet been concluded.
  • the debtors' registers under the new law, which have been set up in each federal state at a central enforcement court. Nationwide access is only possible via the Internet.

You can therefore only be certain that a person has been entered in the debtors' register if you obtain information from both debtors' registers.

Anyone can obtain information from both debtors' registers on request if they show that the personal information is to be used for one of the purposes specified in the Code of Civil Procedure (see under Requirements).

Chambers (e.g. chambers of industry and commerce or chambers of handicrafts) or trade and business information agencies can obtain copies of the debtors' register and pass them on to their members.

Inspection of the debtors' register is permitted to anyone who demonstrates a need for information:

  • for the purposes of compulsory enforcement,
  • in order to comply with legal obligations to verify economic reliability
  • in order to verify conditions for the granting of public benefits,
  • to avert economic disadvantages that may result from debtors failing to meet their payment obligations,
  • insofar as this is necessary for the prosecution of criminal offences and the execution of sentences, or
  • to provide information on entries concerning himself/herself.

Note: The information may only be used for the purpose for which it was obtained. It must be deleted once the purpose has been achieved.
