Nobility was abolished in Austria in 1918 and there is no association of nobility which conforms to the norms of CILANE.
Participation to CILANE activities takes place on authorisation of a representative of the Deutsches Adelsrechtsausschuss. A participant is nominated in the same way to attend the meetings of the CILANE des Jeunes by invitation.
There is a special arrangement for members of the historic nobility of the Polish-Lithuanian Rzeczpospolita, in other words existing before the partitions of Poland (1772–1795).
Participation in CILANE activities is available for those who individually meet the criteria for admission to the grade of Grace and Devotion in the Polish Association of the Order of Malta. There is also a youth group whose members meet these criteria and one of whom attends the meetings of the CILANE des Jeunes by invitation.
