The beA will come later. There are some legal objections

On November 26, 2015 the Federal Bar Association announced in a press release that the electronic lawyer post office box for all lawyers licensed in Germany will not be effective from January 1 2016. The FBA pointed out that the beA system does not have the user-friendliness which the lawyers expect such a system to have.

At a later time the FBA will announce the date of the introduction of the beA.

For the lawyers it means that this is no 'all-clear' signal but only a temporary respite.  We are sure that the FBA will install the beA ready-to- receive on a new date.  We are committed to ensuring that the beA will receive messages only after the attorney's first registration.
