Prohibition of registration

You can ask the Finnish Patent and Registration Office (PRH) not to register you as a person responsible for a company or an organisation at the Finnish Trade Register, the Finnish Register of Associations or the Finnish Register of Foundations without your consent. The responsible person can be, for example, a member of the board.

If you have filed a prohibition of registration when you are notified as a person responsible for a company or an organisation, we will contact you first and ask for your consent.

In order to file a prohibition of registration, you must have a Finnish personal identity code.

The prohibition becomes effective when we have recorded it our processing systems. We will send you a confirmation to the email address you have given.

Please note that a prohibition of registration will not remove any of your previously registered role details from the Finnish Trade Register, the Finnish Register of Associations and the Finnish Register of Foundations.

Check in the service at Suomi.fi whether you are registered in a specific role in a company or an organisation at the Finnish Trade Register. Go to the Suomi.fi service to check your roles registered at the Finnish Trade Register.

Your prohibition of registration remains in effect until further notice. If you want to cancel it, contact our customer service.
