German building law is divided into two areas, public building law and private building law. Public building law includes all standards of public law, relating to the construction as such. Within public building law there is another distinction between the so-called building planning law and the building regulations law. Building planning law regulates inter alia the admissibility of your building project whereas building regulations law regulates potential governmental measures for inobservance of the building code. Furthermore there is the so-called procurement law, which regulates the award of public building contracts. In addition, private building law regulates all legal relations of the parties involved in the construction (building-owner, constructor and special professionals). Due to its complexity the architect law, which regulates the rights and duties of the architect, has become a separate jurisdiction.
