Why do I receive a written invitation?
If no check-up confirmation issued by a pediatrician has arrived at the Central Office until a fixed deadline, a written invitation is sent to the parents suggesting a voluntary screening check-up for their child.
My child has been registered in Berlin, but the screening check-up was performed in another Federal Land or in a foreign Country. What am I to do?
If your child's early screening check-up was performed in another Federal Land or in a foreign country please submit the pediatrician's check-up confirmation notice to the Central Office.
I have not yet contacted a pediatrician. From where may I get a date for the U-check-up?

What if the deadline of one of the child screening check-ups has passed already?
As in such case your pediatrician is unable to bill the screening check-up, we kindly ask you to contact your district's Public Health Department directly. You can find the contact data for the KJGD in charge in the invitation letter.
Which data referring to me and to my child shall be stored (and how long), and how may I get the relevant information?
The civil registration department regularly submits the following data to the Central Office by electronic means on the basis of your child's birth register entry prior to the dates of each of the early screening check-ups U4 to U9 as defined in the Children Guidelines in accordance with the relevant age stratum: Christian name and surname, previous names, if any, date and place of birth, date of decease, if applicable, sex, address, and persons entitled to custody.
