Summary

An advance directive is a written declaration drawn up by an adult who is capable of giving consent, in which, in the event of his inability to give consent, he or she stipulates whether he or she will consent to or prohibit certain health examinations, medical treatments or medical interventions that are not yet imminent at the time of determination. With this so-called legal definition, the legislator describes in Section 1901a, Paragraph 1 of the German Civil Code (BGB) the legal instrument with which it is to be ensured that the will of people at the end of life is respected. The living will has only been regulated by law since the 3rd Amending Care Law came into force on September 1, 2009 (Federal Law Gazette I 2009, 2286). The legislature has assigned the corresponding norms in §§ 1901 a, 1901 b and 1904 BGB to the right of care - and not to the regulations on personality or declaration of intent.
