We keep records of our residents in the Key Register of Persons (BRP). You can ask us for information about a person.
Asking for information
We will decide if you are entitled to receive the information:
- You may only obtain information if you have a personal, non-commercial interest.
- We will first ask the person concerned for his or her approval.
- You will usually receive standard information such as name, date of birth, address, place of residence or date of death.
- You will not be able to receive any information if the person concerned has requested that his personal data should remain confidential.
If you are registered in the municipal persons data base and you would like to view your personal data, you can make an appointment by calling telephone number (0224) 210 400. Do you wish to receive a written record of your personal data? You can ask for a copy. You may only view your personal data on presentation of a valid identity document. Parents or carers with parental authority may view the personal data of their minor children. This is free of charge.
If you look on the website mijnoverheid.nl under the heading ‘Personal information’, you can also find out what information is stored about you in the municipal persons data base. Log in with your DigiD code.
