Would you like to find out how your name, date of birth and other personal details appear in the Personal Records Database (Basisregistratie Personen – BRP)? You can view these at any time. If you have children under the age of 18, you can also view the information held about them. The same applies for any children for whom you have parental authority.
Would you like to view the personal data held about you in the BRP? You can do so by logging in to the MijnOverheid.nl website. Another way is via your municipality.
Authorising someone else to view your data in the BRP
If you want someone else to be able to view your data on your behalf, you can apply to the municipality to have them authorised. This is not necessary if a guardian has been appointed to regulate your personal welfare and your property and financial affairs. Your guardian will be authorised automatically.
Rectifying incorrect information in the BRP
If any of the data held on you in the BRP is incorrect, contact your municipality to correct it.
This is how it works for you
Here is some information from your municipality.
