What is the CRPP?

Since 1 September 2014, there has been a new protection plan for adults, designed to ensure their independence as far as possible. This can be about practical aspects (managing their property) or human aspects (caring for the person), or both.

The Central Personal Protection Register is an e-service. Its objective is to simplify the procedure to make it more accessible. 

What is it for?

You can submit an application for protection, via a request, but also manage your file throughout the procedure or its follow-up:

  • You will receive a list of your files as well as a chronological overview of all related judgments, regulations, reports, documents and correspondence.
  • You can check the status of your files at any time and from anywhere (in progress, pending or in preparation). 
  • You are automatically informed of updates via your e-mail address.
  • For security reasons and to ensure data protection, you will not receive the documents by e-mail; instead you will receive a notification containing a link. Through this link, you can consult and obtain the documents after providing identification. 
  • You can easily request changes (e.g. to the administrator or parties), view the schedule for your case, submit forms, etc.

Who should use it?

Anyone making an application for judicial protection must do so through the register.

In the context of the management, processing or monitoring of a particular judicial protection case:

  • magistrates and registries;
  • lawyers, notaries, process servers;
  • foundations that serve as administrators;
  • any other person listed in the register.

Who can access this register?

In addition to those who must use this register:

  • administrators;
  • the protected person or person to be protected;
  • the heirs of the protected person or person to be protected;
  • the person of trust;
  • the parties to the proceedings.

Submit an application electronically and manage your file

Online / via the website

Go to the tool(available in Dutch, French or German)

Log in via e-ID or with the ItsMe app.

On the homepage of the e-service you will find a list of documents and information required to complete all the steps (contact details of the parties, medical certificate of the person to be protected, etc.)

To make an application, you must provide information about the person and the parties and attach the necessary documents. After you have submitted your application, you will receive a summary of your application.

At the registry

If you need help using the e-service or do not have internet access, you can contact the clerk of the justice of the peace.

PC Kiosks are located in every office of the justice of the peace to allow you to submit your application or manage your file online. 

The clerk can inform you and assist you with the practicalities of filing your application or in managing or following up an existing file. However, the clerk is unable and unauthorised to offer you legal counsel. You can find the contact details of the registries of the courts of justices of the peace on the courts and tribunals website

NB: You can approach any justice of the peace to make an application.

Do you need help?

  • Call 0032+(0)2 278 55 60 and press “3”.
  • Within the application each webpage contains an e-learning video that explains step-by-step how to create and manage a file in the Central Personal Protection Register (CRPP).


Using the e-service is free

However, when submitting an application, a contribution of EUR 24 to the budgetary fund for second-line legal aid may be required. When the payment is confirmed, the case is entered in the roll of the competent court. 

Note: If the applicant is entitled to second-line legal aid or legal assistance, this contribution is not required. You must upload evidence into the system.

As a lawyer/notary/institution

Lawyers can log in via their lawyer card, e-ID or ItsMe.
Notaries and institutions can log in via their company number.
Those who need both professional and private access can identify themselves in the appropriate manner.
