Article 2017.03.16 Ad­min­is­tra­tive Pro­ce­dure Act

In Germany, federal and state laws on administrative procedures play a key role in ensuring effective administration and the rule of law.

Law on administrative procedures guarantees that public authorities arrive at fair decisions in compliance with inalienable principles anchored in constitutional, federal and state law. Such law also provides a reliable basis for making sure that individuals' interests are sufficiently taken into account in administrative decisions. For more than 30 years, the Administrative Procedure Act has demonstrated its effectiveness as the "Basic Law for the public administration" in Germany. The Act is regularly revised to keep up with current framework conditions.

Federal and state laws on administrative procedures are largely the same, as the result of Section 137 (1) no. 2 of the Code of Administrative Court Procedure and close coordination on new provisions.
