AFSA’s PPSR team has launched a new logo, designed specifically for businesses that provide our PPSR data to consumers. This includes organisations that provide assistance with searching and registering on the PPSR or those which provide specialised car history reports.
The ‘Powered by PPSR’ logo is a way for these businesses to show you that some of the data they provide comes from the official Australian Government PPSR. You can be assured that the government-provided data is reliable, trustworthy and accurate. As part of your search, you may also receive a copy of the official Government search certificate.
The services you receive from a business displaying the logo should clearly show what comes from the PPSR and what’s extra.
What if my provider isn’t “Powered by PPSR” – is it still a legitimate search?
While we encourage providers to use Powered by PPSR, it isn’t a requirement. If you have concerns about whether the search you have received is legitimate, you can verify a search certificate for free at Get a copy of a PPSR search result, using the search number.
