Do I need to be present personally when the postman delivers a registered item addressed to me?

Registered items are delivered to the addressee following verification of the latter's identity. Registered postal items other than letters and registered administrative postal items may be delivered at the address indicated to an adult whom the distributor knows to be part of the household or of the immediate environment of the addressee, unless the sender marked "Eigenhandig te bestellen" (to be delivered personally) on the front or when the item is accompanied by an acknowledgement of receipt.
