In 2007 the legal reform concerning the supervision of conduct established forensic aftercare as mandatory for patients released from forensic commitment hospitals and offenders released from penitentiaries. Therefore, in the past 10 years forensic outpatient departments have evolved all over Germany in a state-speciﬁc manner according to the legal mandate of treating and managing released offenders. Some of these outpatient departments were newly founded and some were long established units for treating and managing offenders that expanded their services for offenders under supervision of conduct. During the past years these heterogeneous outpatient departments have formed a federal network targeting professional exchange, commonalities, discrepancies and distinct characteristics in realizing the legal mandate. Following the debate on minimum requirements in forensic psychiatric aftercare departments of forensic commitment hospitals in 2014, this federal network developed quality criteria. Despite diverse state and trusteeship-speciﬁc conditions, these quality criteria emphasize common content and formal factors for a successful forensic outpatient treatment. This article presents the result of a discussion process along with the agreed quality criteria in the categories of the quality of structure, process and results.
