The Collateral Registry is headed by a Registrar who manages the operation of the registry and who is responsible for receiving and registering all applications. Applications should be made by notice. Such notice may include: applications for registration of a security interest created over any movable properties of any kind, amendments, releases, objections or enforcements on the payment of fees charged. Certificates are issued for each type of registration.
The Registry is a public database and can be accessed upon payment of a search fee specified on the appropriate form.
Besides registrations, the Registry also provides information on the existing securities as they relate to specific movable property including date of registration of the security, duration of the registration, names and identities of secured parties, number of securities existing over a collateral and the priorities between secured parties.
