Permissions, in relation to transactions on the PPS Register, refers to the ability to undertake tasks or transaction on the PPS Register.

Each permissible action in the PPS Register should have at least one corresponding permission to authorise it. For example, the details of a registration can be retrieved, provided the corresponding registration token is supplied.

Permissions are not directly assigned to a user of the PPS Register. Roles are formulated from a conglomeration of permissions. All actions that a user can take are authorised through the appropriately assigned groups of roles.
