Extracts from the Register of Guardianship Affairs
You have the right to access information on whether someone is under guardianship and their guardian’s name.
The Register of Guardianship Affairs will provide information to you on whether someone is under guardianship, who their guardian is and what the duties of the guardian are. Information on any restrictions on the person's functional capacity is also recorded in the register.
The Register of Guardianship Affairs also provides information on valid power of attorney mandates for the management of financial affairs and the assignees that have been granted power of attorney.
Once guardianship has come to an end or power of attorney has expired, you will only be provided the information you have requested if you need it to fulfil your interests, rights, or obligations.
The Register of Guardianship Affairs is a national register which discloses information to various authorities, associations, and private persons. The data is disclosed as single paper prints (extract from the Register of Guardianship Affairs). State or municipal authorities, as well as associations or entrepreneurs, who continuously need data from the register for an approved purpose, can access information via a technical user interface.
If you have been appointed guardian or have power of attorney and you need a certificate to perform your duties abroad, you can request a certificate on your status as guardian from the agency.
