1.2.3 Teleological interpretation

Like national and international courts, the Enlarged Board applies the method of teleological interpretation in the construction of legislative provisions in the light of their purpose, values, and the legal, social and economic goals they aim to achieve. In this, the Enlarged Board examined their objective sense and purpose (e.g. G 1/88, point 5 of the Reasons; G 1/03, point 2.1.1 of the Reasons). The starting point was marked by determining the general object of the relevant provision (ratio legis) because the interpretation could not contradict the provision's spirit (G 6/91, point 8 of the Reasons).
