03 September 2012 - Improvements to PPSR searching and registrations now available
Since the commencement of the PPSR we have received valuable feedback from clients as to how we can further improve their business processes when registering interests and searching the register. During this transitional period we have implemented a number of changes that improve the overall performance of the system and the way transactions are reported.
We are pleased to advise clients that further enhancements have been released to make your PPSR experience with CITEC Confirm much easier. The key changes include:
1. Bulk Retrieval of certificates and attachments for Grantor Searches
|Search certificate status flag is provided within the search screen|
|Single Certificates can be retrieved via the 'Certificate' button or in bulk via the download button|
|For bulk downloads an additional pop up box will appear initiating the bulk retrieval and provide the user with a progress indicator|
|Once download is complete all certificates and attachments will be available in a zip file for printing or saving.|
Note: If the pop-up box is closed, documents will be downloaded at a later time.
2. Grantor Searches now default to searching all collateral class types
All collateral classes are now selected by default and display in a text box so the user is able view collateral types prior to searching.
1. Additional Validation
Our solution ensures the VIN entered meets the 17 character requirement before submitting to the PPSR. For older vehicles that have VINs less than 17 characters it is recommended you enter details in the Chassis Number field to meet validation requirements.
2. Rejected Registrations
New registrations rejected by the PPSR may now be cancelled.
3. Transitional Registrations are now more clearly identified
Transitional registrations will now be identified on your usage reports.
|Improved search reports that summarise all interests related to an item of personal property.|
|Improved search filtering using a range of criteria including collateral type, collateral class, priority and timeframes.|

14 December 2011 - Preparation for the PPS Register
The Attorney General’s office are advising businesses to prepare for the introduction of the PPS Register by following these steps:
- Gather all the agreements you have along with the details of the entities you do business with.
- Ensure all these agreements are up to date and have correct contact details.
- Speak to your advisor who will establish the exact impact of the reform on your business. They will be able to advise what may need to be registered on the PPSR and the impacts and risks on your business if you choose not to register.
- Once you have made these decisions, you may then need to update your documents, register interests you have determined to be personal property security interests on the PPSR and update your business processes with any changes to how you operate.
