Register of associations; inspection

The register of associations is public. Anyone is permitted to inspect the register of associations kept by the register court and the documents submitted for information purposes.

Description

The register of associations and the documents submitted by the associations may be inspected by anyone. A justified interest in inspection does not have to be demonstrated. This means that even non-members can obtain information about the factual and legal circumstances of registered associations (e. V.).

In Bavaria, the maintenance of the register of associations is concentrated at those local courts that are also responsible for maintaining the commercial register. Locally responsible is the district court - registration court, in whose district the registered association has its registered office. These are the following courts:

In addition, the registers of associations kept electronically throughout Bavaria can also be viewed online - for a fee - via the Common Register Portal of the Federal States. Further information on online register inspection can be found under "Online procedure". The register portal is also used for announcements by the register courts throughout Germany.

Further information on associations with legal capacity can be found in the brochures "Der eingetragene Verein" and "Vereinsrecht - Rund um den eingetragenen Verein (e. V.)" (Association Law - All About Registered Associations). (see "Further links"), which you can download free of charge.
