Data Protection

The Data Protection Acts 1988 and 2003 ("the Acts") are designed to protect people’s privacy.  The Acts confer rights on individuals in relation to the privacy of their personal data as well as responsibilities on those persons holding and processing such data.

Personal data is defined as data relating to a person who is or can be identified either from the data itself or from the data in conjunction with other information that is in, or is likely to come into, the possession of the Insolvency Service of Ireland. It covers any information that relates to an identifiable, living individual. This data can be held on computer or in manual files.

The Insolvency Service requires all its employees to comply with its Data Protection policy.


Accessing your Personal Information

Under Section 4 of the Data Protection Acts 1988 and 2003, an individual has a right to obtain a copy, clearly explained, of any information relating to them kept on computer or in a structured filing system, by any person or organisation.

When making a request, you should give any details you have that would help us identify you and to locate all the information that we may keep about you – for example, any previous addresses, date of birth, reference number from previous contact with the ISI.

You should also provide proof of identity, such as a copy of a driver’s licence or passport.

You may be asked to pay a fee, but this cannot exceed €6.35.

A response should issue within 40 days of receipt of your request.



Your request should be submitted to the following postal address:
