The following countries are designated areas in respect of civilians living with or staying with a service person:[4]

These definitions will therefore include, for example, family members living with a soldier stationed in Germany.

Civilians subject to service discipline may be tried in the Service Civilian Court[5] or by the Court Martial (although the Court Martial will be made up of civilian, not military, members[6]).

Comparison with other countries

The list of civilians who are subject to service discipline is more extensive than in some other countries—for example, in the United States, civilian spouses, dependents, and guests of military personnel are not included in the list of people subject to that country's Uniform Code of Military Justice.[7]
