||In Germany, physicians and dentists are legally obliged to immediately report a justified suspicion of an occupational disease. Failure to comply with the reporting obligation during the lifetime of the insured leads to the loss of a pension and can substantiate liability claims by family members against the physician. This article discusses the five ways of setting in motion a formal occupational disease establishment procedure in compliance with the law. Appendices include: list of occupational diseases recognized in Germany; recommendations for the determination of an occupational disease; list of institutions to which occupational diseases can be reported. See also CIS 09-000 ISN 3.
