Searching by a point in time

You can search the PPSR as at a previous point in time, to identify registrations that were current at that earlier date and time.

Point-in-time search types

Point-in-time searches can be conducted for:

  • individual grantor
  • organisation grantor
  • serial number, for motor vehicles, watercraft, aircraft and intellectual property (patent, design, trade mark and plant breeder’s right).

You need the consent of the Registrar

A point-in-time search requires the consent of the Registrar. You are not able to do it online.

The National Service Centre (NSC) can perform this search for you. Contact us for a manual search request form for individual grantor, organisational grantor, or a serial number point-in-time search.

Return the completed form to forms@ppsr.gov.au along with your payment.

The fee for a point-in-time search is available from the fees page.

Registrations prior to the start of the PPSR

You cannot conduct a point-in-time search for registrations that ended before the start of the PPSR. The PPSR was launched on 30 January 2012.  For registrations before this date see previous securities registers and migrated data.
