Please note that only the version of any federal law published in the Federal Law Gazette (Bundesgesetzblatt) is regarded as official. The online version of the Federal Law Gazette is available though not user-friendly. Texts of numerous federal laws can also be found at http://bundesrecht.juris.de/bundesrecht/ (supported by the Federal Government). These are, however, not the official versions of federal laws. The official version of federal laws can be only found in the Federal Law Gazette, which also provides information on the state of latest changes. Since quite a long time is needed to process comprehensive alteration regulations, the information contained in the Federal Law Gazette is not always up-to-date.
