Media information

Media enquiries

We do not generally provide comment about individual bankruptcy cases, however we welcome media enquiries about the personal insolvency process, the Personal Property Securities Register (PPSR), proceeds of crime and AFSA's statistical data.

There are a number of personal insolvency documents that are available for public inspection. For further information on publicly available documents, see Inspection of public documents.

To access publicly available information about a personal insolvency, you can search the National Personal Insolvency Index (NPII) for a fee.

To make a media enquiry please email media [at] or phone 0408 105 665.
