When the Personal Property Securities Register (PPSR) was established it replaced over 35 separate State and Territory registers.
Registrations recorded on these registers were automatically migrated to the PPSR on 30 January 2012.
Many of these migrated registrations contained defective data or were missing data required by the PPSR. Because of this, a grace period was allowed for secured parties to fix their migrated registrations to ensure they comply with the PPSR’s requirements.
The grace period is coming to an end in January 2017 for migrated registrations without an end date. If you fail to correct your registrations before the end of the grace period you may lose your protection.
What should you do?
- review your migrated registrations through your account on the PPSR website and ensure the data they contain is complete and correct in every respect;
- if you have not claimed your transitional registrations, you will need to follow the PPSR’s ‘find and claim’ process; or
- please contact us if you would like us to assist you.
