The Personal Property Registry (PPR) provides online registration and search services to support the legislative requirements of the Personal Property Security Act and the enforcement of money judgments and other civil enforcement proceedings that form part of the Civil Enforcement Act. Interests in the personal property must be registered in the Personal Property Registry to avoid possible loss or legal conflicts. It is very important to keep in mind that registration of your interest in the Personal Property Registry does not guarantee priority over all other interests. It is, however, a necessary step to protect your interest.
