Most PPRS functions are accessible to authorized users only.  The Lien Check Service is an exception. Lien Check provides access for anyone to perform a search for serial numbered goods -- a car, trailer, mobile home, airplane, boat or outboard motor -- by paying with a credit card.

PPRS registration, search and administrative functions are summarized below.

If you are a PPRS user the following functions may or may not appear in your application menu depending upon your access privileges.
