In September , an ordinance was published concerning dangerous working materials; safeguarding persons using these materials against the dangers involved. In August , a law came into force directed at reducing atmospheric pollution from lead compounds in four-stroke engine fuels. As a safeguard against radiation, a decree on the system of authorisations for medicaments treated with ionizing radiation or containing radioactive substances, in its version of 8 August , was remodelled by a new Decree of 10 May which added some radionuclides to the list of medicaments which doctors in private practice were authorized to use.
Amongst its designated tasks included the promotion of industrial protection, accident prevention on the journey to and from work and accident prevention in the home and leisure activities, the encouragement of training and advanced training in the area of industrial protection, and to promote and coordinate accident research.

The Works Constitution Act of required in cases of collective dismissal at an establishment normally employing more than twenty employees that management and the works council must negotiate a social plan that stipulates compensation for workers who lose their jobs. In cases where the two parties could not agree on a social plan, the law provided for binding arbitration. A law of January on the organization of labour in enterprises significantly extended the works council's right of cooperation and co-management in the matter of vocational training. That same year, the Safety Institute of the Federal Republic of Germany was transformed into a public Federal Agency Bundesanstalt with significantly enlarged powers, in the context of which special emphasis would be placed on its new task of promoting and coordinating research in the area of accident prevention.
Employers who failed to do so were assessed DM per month for every job falling before the required quota.

Brandt's Ostpolitik led to a meltdown of the narrow majority Brandt's coalition enjoyed in the Bundestag. On 24 April a constructive vote of no confidence was proposed and it was voted on three days later. On paper, the opposition now had votes, just one over the needed to oust Brandt.
Even Brandt himself believed he was finished, and a number of unions went on strike in anticipation of Brandt's expected defeat on the floor of the Bundestag. To everyone's surprise, the motion failed: Barzel got only votes out of votes cast, two short of what he needed to become Chancellor. There were also 10 votes against the motion and three invalid ballots. After German reunification , it emerged that the Stasi had bribed several CDU deputies to abstain from the confidence vote, since East Berlin saw a need for Brandt to stay in power. Though Brandt remained chancellor, he had lost his majority.
Subsequent initiatives in parliament, most notably on the budget, failed. Because of this stalemate, the Bundestag was dissolved and new elections were called.
During the campaign, many popular West German artists, intellectuals, writers, actors and professors supported Brandt and the SPD. Brandt's Ostpolitik as well as his reformist domestic policies were popular with parts of the young generation and he led the SPD to its best-ever federal election result in late The Willy-Wahl , Brandt's landslide win was the beginning of the end; and Brandt's role in government started to decline. The spirit of reformist optimism was cut short by the oil crisis and the major public services strike , which gave Germany's trade unions, led by Heinz Kluncker , a big wage increase but reduced Brandt's financial leeway for further reforms.
Brandt was said to be more a dreamer than a manager and was personally haunted by depression. To counter any notions about being sympathetic to Communism or soft on left-wing extremists, Brandt implemented tough legislation that barred "radicals" from public service Radikalenerlass.

Guillaume was arrested on 24 April , and many [ who? Brandt resigned from his position as chancellor on 6 May , but he remained a member of the Bundestag and chairman of the Social Democrats through This espionage affair is widely considered to have been just the trigger for Brandt's resignation, not the fundamental cause. As Brandt himself later said, "I was exhausted, for reasons which had nothing to do with the affair [the Guillaume espionage scandal] going on at the time.
Wolf stated after the reunification that the resignation of Brandt had never been intended, and that the planting and handling of Guillaume had been one of the largest mistakes of the East German secret services. For the rest of his life, Brandt remained suspicious that his fellow Social Democrat and longtime rival Herbert Wehner had been scheming for Brandt's downfall. After his term as the Chancellor, Brandt retained his seat in the Bundestag , and he remained the Chairman of the Social Democratic Party through Beginning in , Brandt stepped down to become the Honorary Chairman of the party.

However, in early , a dispute arose about what Carlsson perceived as the SI president's authoritarian approach.
Carlsson then rebuked Brandt saying: Next, against some vocal opposition, Brandt decided to move the next Socialist International Congress from Sydney, Australia to Portugal.

During Willy Brandt's presidency the SI developed activities and dialogue on a number of International issues.

Bahro and his supporters were attacked by the East German state security organization Stasi , headed by Erich Mielke , for his writings, which had laid the theoretical foundation of a left-wing opposition to the ruling SED party and its dependent allies, and which promoted new and changed parties.
All of this is now described as "change from within". Brandt had asked for Bahro's release, and Brandt welcomed Bahro's theories, which advanced the debate within his own Social Democratic Party.
