Goals and Objectives of the BDD
Private Investigators of the Federal Republic of Germany joined together in the BDD to defend their constitutionally guaranteed rights towards the legislative, executive and judicial authorities. Private Detectives in Germany provide a professional service to the public on the grounds of the liberal democratic state under the rule of law and are thereby committed to the well being of all citizens. The BDD is engaged to maintain and promote the economic basis of its members.
The Private Investigators organized in the BDD a working to achieve a higher level of professional qualification and to maintain a high standard of morale within the profession. They request a legally recognized training as the basic qualification for a regulated profession to be implemented.
The BDD stands for a collegial and liberal conduct of the profession under the provision that minimum standards of qualification must be given. The BDD opposes however legal requirements, which have a negative impact on an effective investigative work and requests from the German Government to support corresponding liberal professional regulations through the European Parliament.
Police and state attorney bodies are relieved by private investigators services. Thereby Private Investigators contribute to a high level of internal security in Germany. The government of the Federal Republic of Germany is requested to preserve this positive factor of internal security for all citizens in support of their legal personal interests.
By the foundation of the “International Commission of Private Investigator Associations (IKD) in 1963, together with the “Österreichischer Detektiv-Verband” (ÖDV) and the “Fachverband Schweizerischer Privat-Detektive” (FSPD), the BDD paved the way for the European unification of private investigators. The BDD is committed to further improve this way and to allow also former East-Bloc countries to join as members.
The BDD is committed to promote the public image of the profession and to increase its acceptance in the community.
