NEVDIS is a national database of all registered vehicles in Australia.
The PPSR interfaces with NEVDIS to provide additional information (where available) on motor vehicles when registrations are made against motor vehicles as collateral, and when motor vehicle searches are conducted.
The PPSR does not store or maintain NEVDIS data.
State and territory road agencies are the source of NEVDIS data and the primary point of contact for enquiries, errors and corrections.
Normalisation means converting certain letters to numbers, for example I (capital i) to the number 1 (one) and the letters O and Q to number 0 (zero). I, O and Q are normalised in the PPSR: I = 1 (one), O and Q = 0 (zero)

An ordinal search allows users to compare two registration events (start time, change number, end time).
The organisation identifier is the name or number that identifies the organisation.
This can include the name, ACN, ABN, ARBN, or ARSN allocated to an organisation.
It is important to ensure that the correct organisation identifier is included in the registration (incorrect identifiers for grantors may lead to the registration being ineffective). The identifier rules are contained in the PPS Regulations.
