BIBOB law

BIBOB law

The BIBOB law empowers government organs, like city councils, to check on the background of a person or company, before giving them an operating licence or a subsidy or an official commission.
If it appears that there is a criminal record or that money from illegal sources is being laundered, then the licence, subsidy or commission will be withheld. This is intended to avoid the state supporting criminal activities and the underworld economy getting an economic hold in the legitimate world.
