The Criminal Records Database is a state database holding data about punished persons and their punishments. Since year 2012 the Criminal Records Database is a part of the state-wide e-File.
The valid records of the Criminal Records Database are public – except misdemeanour cases where the person has only one valid misdemeanour record with the main punishment being less than 200 € (50 fine units) and with no additional punishment. The Criminal Records Database also doesn’t publish the data about punishments of minors.
