Signed the agreement, valid for 5 years, between the Ministry of Justice and the institute directed by Ernesto Maria Ruffini. The officials will have access to the databases of the financial administration to acquire the information useful for identifying the assets to be subject to execution, also in the context of insolvency proceedings
Bailiffs will be able to access the databases of the financial administration to search electronically for assets to be seized following a request from a creditor or to be subjected to bankruptcy proceedings at the request of the trustee. The novelty is the result of an agreement signed by the Minister of Justice, Carlo Nordio, and by the director of the Revenue Agency, Ernesto Maria Ruffini, which will be valid for 5 years.
The acquisition of information
The agreement, which has obtained the approval of the Privacy Guarantor, regulates access to the information contained in the databases of the Revenue Agency in compliance with the principles established by the general regulation on data protection and by the data protection code personal data. In particular, bailiffs will be able to use the service, as part of their official duties, to acquire information useful for identifying the assets to be enforced, also in the context of insolvency proceedings.
How does it work
The bailiff may request access for subjects for which a request has been presented by a creditor in possession of an enforceable title and precept or following specific authorization from the president of the court or a judge delegated by him. At that point, it will be the Agency’s task to verify the regularity of the request and send the reply with the information to the ministry’s computer system. On both sides, access to the service will be tracked. Technically, access will take place in a secure manner through an IT cooperation service that uses the Sid (data interchange system).
