What is the processing status of your notification?

The Finnish Patent and Registration Office (PRH) processes notifications in order of arrival.

Monitor the processing of your notification

In the Information Service of the Finnish Register of Associations, you can see the date and time of arrival, status, and latest processing phase of your notification free of charge. Search by using the Business ID or the record number. Go to the Notification search in the Information Service of the Register of Associations.

If you filed the notification online, you can follow its processing status using the online filing service of the Register of Associations. The online filing service is available in Finnish and Swedish. Go to the online filing service of the Register of Associations.

You may have to correct or supplement your notification, in which case the processing time will be longer. Your notification will lapse if you do not correct or supplement it by the deadline given by the PRH. For justifiable reasons, you can request an extension to the deadline from the officer in charge of the processing.

If the notification was filed online, we will notify the contact person about the registration by email. In this case, you will find the extract from the Register of Associations in the Information Service of the Register of Associations.

If you filed the notification with the Register of Associations on paper, we will send the extract from the Register of Associations after registration by post to the association or the person mentioned in the notification as the person providing further information.

How do I request a certain registration date?

The PRH makes exceptions to the processing order of notifications only for justifiable reasons. When you request a certain date or accelerated processing for your notification, remember to mention the reason for your request.

Please note that the requests are public. Do not include any such details in your request that should not be published.

We observe the requests whenever possible, but cannot, however, answer your requests separately.

Before sending your notification

If you use our paper forms (“Y forms") to file your notifications, request for registration by a desired date by ticking the box under the text “Rekisteröinnin ajankohtaa koskeva pyyntö" (on the Finnish form) or "Begäran som gäller registrering" (on the Swedish form) on page 1 on the form. Submit a separate request together with your paper notification. The request must include the reason why the notification should be registered on a certain date or why its processing should be accelerated.

After submitting your notification

You can also request a certain registration date or accelerated processing after you have filed your notification. This is also possible when you have filed your notification in the Information Service of the Register of Associations.

Send your request by email. The request must include the reason why the notification should be registered on a certain date, the requested date of registration, the association’s name, Business ID, if any, and details of the notification in question (such as its record number).

Send the email to yhdistysasiat[a]prh.fi.
