The Lost or stolen Identity Card and Passport System is an auxiliary Databank containing declarations (submitted either directly to Tiresias SA or via the Ministry of Public Order) of lost or stolen ID cards and passports. The purpose of this database is to keep, the wider banking sector in general, informed in order to protect transactions and clients involved from potential consequential damages resulting from loss or theft.
ID cards and Passports which have been lost or stolen and are declared either to Tiresias SA or via the Ministry of Public Order.
Additionally, the information regarding the loss/theft of IDs/passports
is collected, and thus stored in the databank, from a relevant application
(in greek) submitted to Tiresias SA by any interested
party. A copy of the declaration of the loss/theft to the Police
or a solemn protestation (Art. 8 L. 1599/1986) certified from a
Public Authority is also required.
Furthermore the relevant application could be sumitted in any Bank
that proceeds it to Teiresias by fax or by post. Database is also
updated periodically from the relative database of the Ministry
of Citizen Protection (DPA decision 11/2006)
The data of the system are stored without time limitation, unless the declaration or loss/theft has been revoked.
