Disclosure of information to private enterprises

Certain changes have been made to the law regarding the access of private enterprises to National Registry information. Under Section 10-1 second paragraph, private entities will now have unrestricted access to the following information for look-ups and updating of their own registers.

  • Full name, including history
  • Date of birth
  • Gender
  • Basis for registered identity
  • Address (not confidential or classified addresses under the Document Protection Instructions), including history
  • Place of birth
  • Citizenship
  • Marital status (all types)
  • Guardian
  • Confirmed future power of attorney
  • Date of death
  • Registration status (resident, emigrated, deceased, ceased and inactive D number)

As before, look-ups in the National Registry are only permitted using so-called ‘unambiguous searches’, where the person is named and identifiable. This also encompasses access to the eQuest service. EVRY will be able to provide more information on how this service works.

In order to gain access to national ID numbers/D numbers, there must be a justified need.
