German term or phrase: BauGB-MaßnahmenG
This is the Maßnahmengesetz zum Baugesetzbuch, and it's the Maßnahmengesetz bit that's getting me. Does anyone have a clue what that might be in English? I'm just using the German abbreviation where the term pops up in the text, but I obviously need to explain it once!

The best I could come up with so far is the Provisions Act on the Federal Building Code, and that sounds pretty silly. Someone out there is bound to have encountered one of the Maßnahmengesetze before and have come up with something reasonable that I can use? I hope...

agree  Steffen Walter: The DE-EN Dictionary of Projects Abroad (ISBN 3-528-01757-0) gives: Maßnahmengesetz zum Baugesetzbuch = Administrative Measures Act to Supplement the Federal Building Code / Your suggestion is equally valid IMHO as there is no "official" translation.
