Austria

Based on the provisions of the Austrian Federal Constitution, the federal states are responsible for matters of youth protection in terms of legislation and enforcement. Therefore, different youth protection laws apply in each federal state. The full legislative texts of the federal states may be found in the legal information system of the Federal Chancellor's Office at www.bka.gv.at. For children and young persons, the law of the federal state in which they are currently staying is applicable.

Spain

Spain is not formally a Federal State, but the Constitution organises the country into 19 Autonomous Communities (17 Regions and 2 Autonomous Cities), each with different laws and regulations in many aspects, particularly social services, education, health, and policies for families and children. The Central Government based in Madrid in general makes legislation in many matters throughout the country, but after each Autonomous Community autonomously apply legislation and sets policies and regulations for its own territory. For this reason many of the regulations mentioned in this questionnaire may experience minor variations by Region. http://www.aprodef.org/redir/child-laws
