PPSR availability

The Personal Property Securities Register (PPSR) is highly available.  It can generally be accessed online seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

At a regular time every week the PPSR is unavailable due to maintenance. There may also be times that the PPSR is not available due to technical issues or other factors.

Scheduled Outage:

  • Sunday 13 October between 6:00am – 9:00am Canberra time.

During the outage:

  • You will be able to search on the PPSR but search results will not return any NEVDIS information.
  • You will be able to register security interests on the PPSR but registrations will not return any NEVDIS information.

NEVDIS data is intended to assist users with checking that the VIN or Chassis Number they entered along with information they have about the vehicle from other sources is accurate, and provides users with any data held on NEVDIS about a vehicle’s stolen or written off status.

Important: The absence of NEVDIS information from a search certificate or verification statement due to unavailability of the NEVDIS database at the time it was issued does not affect the data on the PPSR in relation to security interests, and no refunds are available in those circumstances.

Should you wish to obtain the NEVDIS data, a search of the PPSR by serial number at another time may provide that information
