Debtor directory Information

If you have a legitimate interest, you will receive information about individual entries via the central debtor directory and can also view your own data records.


You may only use personal information from the debtor register for the purpose you have specified. Information can be provided:

  • for the purposes of enforcement
  • to comply with legal obligations to verify economic reliability
  • to examine conditions for the granting of public benefits
  • to avert economic disadvantages that may arise from debtors failing to meet their payment obligations, or
    to the extent necessary for the prosecution of criminal offences
  • if you would like to receive information about any entries that concern you yourself


The previous lists of debtors pursuant to Section 915 of the Code of Civil Procedure (ZPO) will be continued for a transitional period after 1 January 2013. A transfer of the entries from the debtor register according to the old law in the debtor register of new character does not take place.

Entries under the old law can be determined by the locally competent enforcement court.
