In order to confirm the official registration number, you must enter your social security number. The requested information may be sent as a recommended mail to be sent to the postal service provider on presentation of a credential. The written request and the information provided on paper will be saved on paper for eight years to prove that the request has been received, answered and what has been disclosed.
