A lawyer holding a power-of-attorney to represent another is considered an authorised person for purposes of access to the Individual Credit Register. This means that the lawyer can request data from the ICR relating to the person represented.

In order to be authorised to access the ICR, the lawyer must first fill in a form (FR-NL). This requirement was agreed with the Belgian bar associations.

The ICR will then send the requested information by post.

More information

Lawyers can find more information about the ICR on this webpage and in the legislation governing the ICR.

 Personal data will never be given out over the telephone or provided by e-mail.
