According to deputy chief executive officer at COJ, Shellie Leon, users of the registry will now need an account to access certain information and carry out a search.
"Initially, anybody could go on the registry and do a public search; however, members of the public felt that there may be an invasion of their privacy," Leon told the JIS Think Tank.
"So, what the COJ and the Government of Jamaica have done, in order to balance the interest of the public and the ease of giving credit, is to allow public searches, but to do this on a restricted basis ... so persons will have to create an account before they can go on the registry and do a search," she informed.
Leon explained that the searches would now be done through a two-tiered system.
"So when someone logs on, the first level of information that they can get is the name of the debtor and a description of the collateral and information relating to the secured, which is the person, who grants the loan ... so they will be able to get that person's name and contact information," she said.
SECOND TIER OF SEARCH
The second tier of search takes place upon the payment of a fee, and will grant more information with a more detailed description of the asset, the amount borrowed and other information in regard to the loan.
Leon pointed out that the imposition of a fee is intended to ensure that only persons who have a serious interest and a valid reason to search will proceed to this second tier.
She said the changes that have been implemented seek to ensure that whoever goes on the site can be traced, as in order to set up an account, persons must present their Tax Registration Number (TRN) as well as date of birth.
"So when you enter that information, this will be validated against the TRN database and give some level of assurance that the person who is creating the account is indeed one and the same person," she added.
According to Leon, the changes involved the input of several stakeholders, including customer interest groups, financial institutions, microlenders, COJ and other government entities, which made submissions in terms of recommendations and solutions.

Deputy Chief Executive Officer at COJ, Shellie Leon, said users of the registry will now need an account to access certain information and carry out a search. Miss Leon explained that the searches will now be done through a two-tiered system.
The Companies Office of Jamaica (COJ) has implemented changes to the overall operation and use of the Security Interests in Personal Property (SIPP) Registry in order to better protect the information stored on the database.
Deputy Chief Executive Officer at COJ, Shellie Leon, said users of the registry will now need an account to access certain information and carry out a search.
"Initially, anybody could go on the registry and do a public search, however, members of the public felt that there may be an invasion of their privacy," she told JIS News.
"So, what the COJ and the Government of Jamaica (GOJ) have done in order to balance the interest of the public and the ease of giving credit, is to allow public searches, but to do this on a restricted basis…so persons will have to create an account before they can go on the registry and do a search," she informed.
Miss Leon explained that the searches will now be done through a two-tiered system.
"So when someone logs on, the first level of information that they can get is the name of the debtor and a description of the collateral and information relating to the secured, which is the person, who grants the loan…so they will be able to get that person's name and contact information," she informed.
The second tier of search takes place upon the payment of a fee, and will grant more information with a more detailed description of the asset, the amount borrowed and other information in regard to the loan.

As it relates to the use of the Registry, Miss Leon informed that currently there are over 120 subscribers consisting of mainly financial institutions such as banks and other lending facilities.
"It is the lenders themselves who go on and upload the data to the site…so the lender goes and create a registration notice, which will include the details of the debtor and the security," she outlined.
"The COJ enters no data and we are not responsible for any data placed on the site…we are facilitating commerce and credit by keeping this Registry up and running for you, the private parties to come on and place your data," Miss Leon said.
She noted further that "the site is merely a notice and an alert to the third party to say go and check because this asset that you wish to use, somebody else might have an interest in it."

Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the COJ, Shellie Leon, told JIS News that there will be an increase/reduction in fees for some services and the introduction of other services to allow the COJ to operate more efficiently, while satisfying their customers' needs as best as possible.
...
Explaining the need for the increases, Miss Leon said that as an executive agency, the COJ is responsible for earning its keep and the most recent increases were implemented in February 2005.
She said that while the COJ is subsidising the services that it offers, its expenses over the years have been rising significantly as it has been faced with several increases in terms of cost. "Our operating expense for 2005 to 2006 was just over $120 million, while for 2009 to 2010 it is over $200 million," she informed.
Meanwhile, the charges that apply to certain groups, such as charities, non-profit associations and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) will be reduced.
Miss Leon said that for several years, charitable groups have made representation to the COJ, its parent Ministry (Industry, Investment and Commerce), and the Ministry of Finance and the Public Service about their inability to meet statutory obligations.
...
"With the change in fees, this will mean that customers should file their returns on a timely basis, so that they will avoid late fees and penalties," Miss Leon pointed out.
